This is a competitive grant solicitation. The California Energy Commission’s

(Energy Commission’s) Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology

Program (ARFVTP) announces the availability of up to $10,000,000 in grant

funds for projects that will support the manufacture of zero-emission vehicle

(ZEV) infrastructure technologies.

Vehicle Technology Program1

• 2018-2019 Investment Plan Update for the Alternative and Renewable Fuel and

Vehicle Technology Program (CEC-600-2017-010-CMF)2

• Zero-Emission Vehicle Executive Order B-48-183

• 2016 ZEV Action Plan4

3. AVAILABILITY OF FUNDS

A total of up to $10,000,000 is available for awards under this solicitation. The

Energy Commission, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to increase or

decrease the amount of funds available under this solicitation.

4. MINIMUM AND MAXIMUM AWARD AMOUNTS

Projects are eligible for up to 50 percent of the total project costs or $2,000,000

or whichever is less.

5. MAXIMUM NUMBER OF APPLICATIONS

Applicants are only eligible to submit one application under this solicitation.

 

Private businesses that manufacture EV chargers/components and HRS

components/equipment are eligible.

This solicitation is open to business entities that meet the solicitation

requirements and agree to the Terms and Conditions and Special Terms and

Conditions. The Energy Commission will not award agreements to noncomplying

entities.

 

All manufactured products must be for commercial sale. Demonstration and precommercial

projects with products proposed for development are ineligible. Unlike

previous manufacturing solicitations, vehicles, and vehicle components and technologies

will not be eligible.

 

Eligible costs under previous ARFVTP manufacturing solicitations focused on the

acquisition of manufacturing tools and equipment, as well as the labor specifically

needed for installation and validation. Staff proposes to continue this approach, while

also allowing funding for workforce training of new and incumbent workers on the use of

the new manufacturing equipment and support services/systems.
