CA Energy Commission - Innovative Hydrogen Refueling Solutions for Heavy Transport. Due 11/18.

Opportunity Title:

Innovative Hydrogen Refueling Solutions for Heavy Transport



Opportunity Number:

GFO-22-502



Description:

The purpose of this solicitation is to fund research, development, and demonstration projects that support the approved fiscal year (FY) 21-22 and pending FY 22-23 Gas R&D Program Plan’s transportation initiative titled “Advanced Hydrogen Refueling Infrastructure Solutions for Heavy Transport". In partnership with the California Energy Commission’s (CEC) Clean Transportation Program (CTP), the solicitation will also support the 2021-2023 Investment Plan Update for the CTP’s allocation for Medium- and Heavy-Duty (MDHD) Zero-Emission Vehicles and Infrastructure activities.

In order to accelerate actions to mitigate climate change, Governor Newsom signed Executive Order (EO) N-79-20 in September 2020 and set targets for 100 percent of MDHD vehicles to be zero-emission by 2045 and 100 percent of off-road vehicles to be zero-emission by 2035, for all operations where feasible. Hydrogen fuel cells are a complementary zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) technology, which may help decarbonize heavy off-road transport applications that can be challenging to electrify directly due to high energy requirements and continuous or multiple-shift operations that require fast refueling times. Referencing EO N-79-20, the California Air Resources Board’s 2022 Draft Scoping Plan identifies ZEV transportation-related actions needed to achieve carbon neutrality by 2045 under the Proposed Scenario. Hydrogen fuel cells can potentially provide a decarbonization pathway for end-use sectors including, but not limited to trucks, aviation, ocean-going vessels, port operations, freight and passenger rail, and construction equipment.



Eligibility:

Business, Individual, Nonprofit, Public Agency, Tribal Government


This solicitation is open to all public and private entities. All projects under Group 1 and Group 2 in this solicitation must benefit Gas IOU ratepayers.
