LCFS ZEV Infrastructure Crediting
The 2018 LCFS amendments added a zero emission vehicle (ZEV) infrastructure crediting provision to the LCFS (section 95486.2) designed to support the deployment of ZEV infrastructure. The ZEV infrastructure provision covers Hydrogen Refueling Infrastructure (HRI) and Direct Current (DC) Fast Charging Infrastructure (FCI). In addition to generating LCFS credit for dispensed fuel, the eligible hydrogen station, or DC fast charger can generate infrastructure credits based on the capacity of the station or charger minus the quantity of dispensed fuel.
