California Energy Commission – 2014‐2015 Vehicle Technology Investment Plan
The California Energy Commission published its “2014‐2015 Investment Plan Update for the Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program.”
This investment plan was formally adopted by the Energy Commission on April 22, 2014.
Full details on the Investment Plan can be found at this PDF California Energy Commission link.
We’ll highlight the specific investments that are directly linked to plug-in vehicles.
The investment plan provides $15 million to support charging infrastructure for plug‐in electric vehicles. This is more than double the $7 million set aside for charging infrastructure last year and the $6.75 million the year before.
The investment plan includes a $15 million allocation for the demonstration of medium‐ and heavy‐duty advanced technology vehicles, some of which will be of the plug-in variety.
The Energy Commission will set aside $5 million to support the continuation of incentives for light‐duty plug‐in electric vehicles for fiscal year 2014‐2015.
That’s all of the spending specific to plug-in vehicles that we see in the detailed Energy Commission report. Perhaps we missed something though? Again, here’s the link to the full PDF document, courtesy of the California Energy Commission.
