GFO-22-615 – Innovative Charging Solutions for Medium- and Heavy-Duty Electric Vehicles
This is a two-phased competitive grant solicitation. The California Energy Commission’s (CEC’s) Clean Transportation Program announces the availability of up to $20,000,000 in grant funds for Phase 1 projects that demonstrate transformative technology solutions and work to accelerate the successful commercial deployment of medium- and heavy-duty (MD/HD) electric vehicle (EV) charging applications, including, but not limited to the following: innovative business models (e.g., truck parking, truck stops/charging hubs, charging corridors, and mobility/charging-as-a-service); and innovative technologies (e.g., large scale ultra-fast charging, interoperability, battery swapping, fuel-cell powered EV charging, wireless charging, inductive charging, overhead catenary, and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technology).
Previous work at the CEC, such as the BESTFIT Innovative Charging grants, the MD/HD Blueprint grants, and the analysis for Assembly Bill (AB) 2127 (Ting, Chapter 365, Statutes of 2018), have continued to highlight the need for increased and innovative charging solutions that are suited for various fleet needs. There needs to be a portfolio of charging solutions and business models that MD/HD vehicle owners and operators can use as diesel vehicles are transitioned to zero-emission options. The purpose of this solicitation is to demonstrate innovative charging technologies and/or business models that highlight the unique needs of MD/HD vehicles and fleets.
Phase 1 of this solicitation is open to all public and private entities with a business presence in California.
Phase 2 of this solicitation will be open to all project teams awarded in Phase 1 that have successfully completed the awarded projects.
Total Amount Available: $20M
