This solicitation will provide up to $20 million to support Medium- and Heavy- Duty infrastructure along designated corridors for both electric and fuel cell electric vehicles. Designated corridors were provided through the efforts of the Clean Transportation Commission mandated by Senate Bill 671.; This is a competitive grant solicitation. The California Energy Commission’s (CEC’s) Clean Transportation Program announces the availability of up to $20 million in grant funds for projects that will design, construct, and operate publicly available medium- and heavy-duty (MDHD) zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) refueling and/or charging infrastructure along designated corridors. In order to accelerate actions to mitigate climate change, Governor Newsom signed Executive Order (EO) N-79-20 in September 2020 and set targets for 100 percent of drayage trucks to be zero emission by 2035, and 100 percent of MDHD vehicles to be zero emission by 2045, for all operations where feasible. Solicitation objectives include: • Supporting MDHD ZEV hydrogen refueling or charging stations along designated corridors to build out infrastructure for the MDHD ZEV goals set forth in EO N-79-20, the Advanced Clean Trucks (ACT) and Advanced Clean Fleet (ACF) regulations, and other applicable statewide goals and regulations. • Supporting a coordinated strategy with other agencies for the MDHD ZEV infrastructure build-out statewide. Prospective Applicants looking for partnering opportunities for this grant funding opportunity should register on the CEC’s Empower Innovation website at
