Advanced Clean Fleets Meeting to Discuss Formation of Truck Regulation Advisory Committee

The California Air Resources Board (CARB or Board) invites you to participate in a public meeting to discuss the formation of a Truck Regulation Advisory Committee (TRAC) for the Advanced Clean Fleets (ACF) Regulation. The meeting will be held in person in Sacramento and via Zoom as indicated below. Remote participants must register via Zoom. This meeting will be recorded and made available on the ACF website.

Date:                 August 22, 2023

                         1001 I Street, Sacramento
                         Register for Zoom meeting if participating online

CARB is committed to the successful implementation of the ACF regulation. At this meeting, staff will discuss and solicit feedback on TRAC member commitment and expectations, future meeting format and schedule, potential subcommittees, and to solicit input on topics TRAC would like to address, and how to plan and organize TRAC’s future activities.

We are looking to the TRAC to help fine tune our outreach, training, and implementation strategies and materials, as well as increase awareness of the needs and opinions of affected stakeholders. The purpose of the TRAC is to identify best practices for implementing the regulation consistent with the regulation language and facilitating constructive dialogue to address key rule implementation issues.

Meeting materials will be made available in advance of the meeting on the Advanced Clean Fleets Meetings & Events website.



At the April 28, 2023, hearing, the Board approved the adoption of the ACF regulation. The ACF Regulation is part of a comprehensive strategy to achieve a zero-emission truck and bus fleet by 2045 everywhere feasible and significantly earlier for market segments such as last mile delivery, public fleets, and drayage applications.

Achieving California’s long-term air quality, climate, and public health goals will require a transition from the conventional combustion technologies to zero-emission everywhere feasible and near-zero-emission powered by clean, low-carbon renewable fuels everywhere else. Promoting the development and use of zero-emission trucks will contribute to the goals set by the Governor’s Executive Order N-79-20 and the Sustainable Freight Action Plan, and will help achieve emission reductions as outlined in the State Implementation Plan, Senate Bill (SB) 350 (de León, Chapter 547, Statutes of 2015), Assembly Bill 32 (Nuñez, Chapter 488, Statutes of 2006), and SB 32 (Pavley, Chapter 249, Statutes of 2016), and Assembly Bill 1279. This effort is part of a broader strategy to increase clean, affordable transportation options such as zero-emission technologies, innovative methods to improve freight activity, and efficiency of transportation systems in California.
