zeb -- Zero-Emission Transit Bus Public Work Group Meeting

Posted: 23 May 2012 13:52:13
The Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) will be holding a series
of public work group meetings to discuss potential projects that
may be eligible for demonstration project funding in Fiscal Year
2012/2013. The ARB AB 118 Air Quality Improvement Program (AQIP)
Advanced Technology Demonstration Projects has proposed the
inclusion of two project categories in the FY 2012/13 AQIP
Funding Plan that is to be heard by the Board at its June 28th
hearing.  If the Funding Plan is approved, ARB will move forward
on soliciting applications for demonstration project funds in the
two project categories identified in the plan.  In support of
that process ARB is holding its first public work group meeting
in the Zero-Emission Transit Bus Category.  The meeting can be
attended either in person or via conference call.

AQIP’s Advanced Technology Demonstration Projects program
provides funding to help accelerate advanced emission reducing
technology into the marketplace that is on the cusp of
commercialization.  AQIP issues grants to public agencies to
oversee the day-to-day activities of project selected for funding
during the two year duration of the demonstration project.

AB 118 provides $30-40 million per year (depending on revenues)
through 2015 for AQIP to fund a variety of air quality incentive
projects, including low-emission vehicle and equipment projects,
air quality research, and advanced technology demonstration
projects.  ARB is currently developing a Proposed FY 2012-13
Funding Plan to be considered by the Board in June 2012. The
Funding Plan is each year’s blueprint for expending AQIP funds
appropriated to ARB in the annual State budget.
