CARB reopens incentives system for clean trucks and buses with hydrogen variants included

June 10, 2021

The Californian Air Resources Board (CARB) and CALSTART have reopened the popular Hydrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP) to new voucher requests – including hydrogen.

The $165m reopening this year will help Californian-based businesses transform its fleets with new zero-emission vehicles, this includes hydrogen, helping to grow the green fuel source in this sector.

With an HVIP voucher, industry-leading vehicles can be as affordable as traditional fossil-fuelled counterparts, enabling purchasers of all sizes to deploy advanced technologies, such as hydrogen, that helps fleets achieve reductions in emissions and air pollution.

Ultimately this helps reach the state’s climate goals by giving an incentive system for switching to zero-emission vehicles in the most impacted communities.
