AQIP and Low Carbon Transportation Advanced Technology Demonstration Projects

This page last reviewed June 23, 2015

The purpose of the Advanced Technology Demonstration Projects is to help accelerate the next generation of advanced technology vehicles, equipment, or emission controls which are not yet commercialized. Local air districts and other public agencies would be eligible to apply for these projects to demonstrate promising technologies to reduce emissions in their regions.

For more information regarding the Advanced Technology Demonstration Projects, see the AQIP and Low Carbon Transportation Funding Plans or contact Earl Landberg at 916.323.1384.
The table below shows the list of all Advanced Technology Demonstration Projects funded by the Air Quality Improvement Program (AQIP) and/or Low Carbon Transportation Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund Investments, including a status of each project.  A link is provided to view the Final Report for all completed projects.
