The California Energy Commission (CEC) has launched Drive – a website designed to educate industry professionals, fleet managers and consumers about greener transportation choices for the 21st century.

The Drive site details a wide swath of transportation projects, from producing renewable fuels, to installing "fueling" stations for alternative fuel vehicles, to the ever-evolving transportation industry. The CEC says that Drive is ideal for fleet managers looking to upgrade vehicles, for local governments seeking incentives to invest in green transportation and for consumers interested in purchasing alt-fuel vehicles.

The site provides a detailed description of California's Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program and serves as a "clearinghouse of information from such varied sources as state and federal government agencies, utilities, and vehicle manufacturers."

"Drive" Website Details Funding Opportunities for Alt Fuels, Vehicles

The California Energy Commission has unveiled "Drive," a new website providing industry professionals, fleet managers and consumers with information about greener transportation choices for the 21st century.

"The new website presents a much needed, clear view of the state's Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program," said Energy Commission Vice Chair James Boyd. "This landmark economic development program provides as much as $100 million annually in competitive grants and financial incentives to develop alternatives to fossil fuels. It leverages federal and private investment to create jobs here in California. 'Drive' clearly lays out the many funding opportunities and serves as a clearinghouse of information from such varied sources as state and federal government agencies, utilities, and vehicle manufacturers."

The "Drive" website details a wide range of transportation projects - from producing renewable fuels, to installing new fueling and charging stations for electric cars and other alternative fuel vehicles, to training the workforce that supports the ever-evolving transportation industry. "Drive" is designed for businesses and manufacturers hoping to develop new technologies, for fleet managers looking to upgrade their vehicles, for local governments seeking incentives to invest in green transportation, or for consumers just looking for ways to cut their costs.

"Drive" is located on the California Energy Commission's website at
