Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Infrastructure Topics

The following page is intended as a resource for finding information about zero-emission fueling infrastructure.

 As California makes moves to secure a cleaner future through the adoption of zero-emission vehicle technology, it must also support and educate stakeholders who need to plan for zero-emission vehicle fleet infrastructure.

CARB is working closely with California Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (Go-Biz), California’s Energy Commission (CEC), other state agencies and utilities in the state to ensure this transition is a success. Investments and strategic planning are happening throughout the state. Infrastructure is a critical issue in California, so CARB has put together the following page of web links intended to assist with finding funding, resources, and background. Please visit frequently, as more resources become available this page will continue to grow.

For more information or to hear an informational update on Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure please view the April 28th Board Meeting date.
