Pre-Solicitation Workshop for Zero-Emission Vehicle Battery Manufacturing Block Grant Projects 8/30

Opportunity Title:

Pre-Solicitation Workshop for Zero-Emission Vehicle Battery Manufacturing Block Grant Projects



Description:

CALSTART will host a remote-access public workshop to discuss and receive feedback on a draft solicitation concept for PowerForward. PowerForward is a California Energy Commission-funded $25 million zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) battery manufacturing block grant designed to 1) attract and retain ZEV battery manufacturing in California, 2) directly and indirectly create high-quality jobs, 3) create positive economic impacts that benefit local communities and priority populations, and 4) contribute to California’s goal of zero-emission transportation.

The purpose of the workshop is to:

  • Present draft design concepts for a ZEV battery manufacturing solicitation.

  • Seek feedback on the design of the solicitation.

  • Seek feedback on the solicitation, application, evaluation criteria, and grant agreement implementation processes.

  • Invite discussion of any funding sources that may complement the PowerForward grants.

  • Discuss solicitation design elements including, but not limited to:

    • Award distribution scenarios, such as size and timing of grants;

    • Match funding requirements; and

    • Eligibility requirements.

  • Inform potential grant applicants of concurrent external funding or loan opportunities that may be available.
