AQIP and Low Carbon Transportation Advanced Technology Demonstration Projects

This page last reviewed September 4, 2018


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. Typically, local air districts, other public agencies, and California-based non-profit organizations would be eligible to apply for these projects to demonstrate promising technologies to reduce emissions.

For more information regarding the Advanced Technology Demonstration Projects, see the Low Carbon Transportation and AQIP Funding Plans or contact Earl Landberg at 916.323.1384.

The table below shows the list of all Advanced Technology Demonstration Projects funded by Low Carbon Transportation Investments and/or AQIP, including a status of each project.  A link is provided to view the Final Report for all completed projects.
