Seeking Input on Medium and Heavy-Duty
Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Funding Needs
The West Coast Collaborative’s Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Corridor Coalition (WCC AFICC) seeks input on funding needs for plug-in electric, hydrogen, propane, compressed and/or liquefied natural gas fueling stations that are accessible to Class 5+ on-highway vehicles (>16,001 lbs), locomotives, marine vessels, and/or other heavy-duty nonroad equipment.
The WCC AFICC has developed a survey to collect information that will help evaluate funding needs for medium and heavy-duty (MHD) accessible alternative fuel stations along the West Coast.
Feedback from this survey will also help to evaluate awareness of and satisfaction with the EPA Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) grant programs.
Deadline Extended: ACTION by September 30, 2021 – Submit survey responses regarding needed MHD accessible plug-in electric, hydrogen, propane, compressed and/or liquefied natural gas fueling stations in the WCC states and territories, including: Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Tribal Lands, and the U.S. Pacific Island Territories of American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands (~10 minutes per response).
This survey seeks to build upon the findings presented in the CALSTART Medium and Heavy-Duty Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Strategic Development Plan (March 2020). The plan outlines initial infrastructure investments needed to support MHD alternative fuel vehicle and equipment deployment in California, Oregon, and Washington (141 projects, ~$374M needed for targeted technologies).
The WCC AFICC hopes to complement the Federal Highway Administration's Alternative Fuel Corridor Designation Program by identifying specific opportunities for MHD accessible alternative fuel station development near highway corridors.
