Brief — California Energy Commission

The California Energy Commission (CEC) plans to host two natural gas vehicle (NGV) workshops in Long Beach and Fresno, CA, on Friday and Monday, Feb. 19 and 22, respectively, to gather comments on the development of NGV engine technologies for off-road vehicles. The CEC seeks to provide insight on the current off-road vehicle market, advanced technology needs, and the market potential for natural gas-powered off-road vehicles. Two of the state’s most severely polluted regions are the San Joaquin Valley and the South Coast Air Basins, and off-road vehicles are one of the largest sources of nitrogen oxide emissions in those areas. Later this year, the CEC plans to release a grant solicitation aimed at developing and demonstrating cleaner engine technologies.
