Along with grant approvals to save water, identify methane leaks and secure natural gas infrastructure, the California Energy Commission (CEC) has approved nearly $13.5 million in grants for alternative fuels and transportation projects.

According to the CEC, the $13.5 million has been approved to showcase low- and zero-emission vehicles at two of the state’s busiest seaports, to identify and install electric vehicle charging sites at California’s national parks, and to complete hydrogen refueling station evaluations.

Project funds are from the Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program (ARFVTP), which aims to reduce California’s use and dependence on petroleum transportation fuels and increase the use of alternative and renewable fuels and advanced vehicle technologies.

According to the CEC, the ARFVTP has invested more than $606 million to date and funded more than 543 clean transportation projects.
