This is a competitive contract solicitation to support the California Air Resources Board (CARB or Board) Sustainable Transportation and Communities Division. CARB encourages proposers to form multidisciplinary teams to fulfill contract requirements. Principal Investigators (PIs) must be affiliated with University of California (UC) and California State Universities (CSU); however, CARB welcomes applications that include subcontractors from outside of the UC/CSU systems.
The objective of this project is to support local governments in creating equitable, multi-modal zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) ecosystems (ZEV readiness). This work will help prepare communities for light-, medium-, and heavy-duty ZEVs, e-mobility, and associated infrastructure and support effective, equitable implementation. In developing the assessment and resources, the contractor will examine the state of both planning and implementation for ZEV readiness at the local government scale and identify opportunities to improve and support implementation success.
