Pilot Project Ideas

Related Information

Background

At the direction of Governor Brown's Executive Order B-32-15 executed in July 2015, the California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA), California Natural Resource Agency and the California Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA) are leading a team of related departments in the development of an integrated action plan by July 2016 that establishes clear targets by July 2016 to improve freight efficiency, transition to zero-emission technologies, and increase the competitiveness of California’s economy.

The lead agencies have developed an interagency group that includes the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), the California Air Resources Board (ARB), California Energy Commission (CEC) and the Governor's Office of Business and Economic Development (Go-Biz), who are to initiate work this year on corridor-level freight pilot projects focused on integrating advanced technologies, alternative fuels, freight fuel infrastructure, and opportunities for local economic development along California's primary trade corridors.

At the October 20, 2015 California Freight Advisory Committee meeting, the interagency group put out a call for pilot project ideas.  The submittals received by the November 30, 2015 deadline are listed below.
