Workshop on the Role of Hydrogen in California’s Medium- and Heavy-Duty Vehicle Fleet

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) invites you to participate in a Workshop on the Role of Hydrogen in California’s Medium- and Heavy-Duty On-Road Vehicles in California. This workshop is part of the agreement with the Truck and Engine Manufacturers in the Clean Truck Partnership. It will be a virtual meeting at the following time:

Date:                November 28, 2023
Time:                12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. (Pacific Time)
Location:          Virtual through Zoom


The meeting will feature a panel of leading experts from government, national labs and manufacturers to discuss the market for hydrogen fueling infrastructure, the state of technology and market for fuel cell electric trucks and hydrogen combustion engines in the medium-and heavy-duty vehicles. Meeting materials including an agenda, and recording will be available on the Advanced Clean Fleets website, Clean Truck Partnership meeting and events page.


On July 6, 2023, CARB announced a Clean Truck Partnership with the nation’s leading truck manufacturers and the Truck and Engine Manufacturers Association that advances the development of zero-emission vehicles (ZEV) for the commercial trucking industry. This partnership marks a commitment from the companies to meet California’s zero‑-emission tailpipe standard, regardless of whether any other entity challenges California’s authority to set more stringent emissions standards than those under the federal Clean Air Act. In turn, CARB has agreed to work collaboratively with manufacturers, to provide lead time to meet CARB’s requirements before imposing new regulations, and to support the development of necessary ZEV infrastructure.

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 (AB) 32 (Nuñez, Chapter 488, Statutes of 2006), and SB 32 (Pavley, Chapter 249, Statutes of 2016), and AB 1279 (Muratsuchi, Chapter 337, Statutes of 2022).
