The CPUC’s Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) programs currently authorize $ million of ratepayer funding for fiscal years and for the IOUs’ incremental costs of alternative fuel and vehicle procurement relative to conventional vehicles, and other LEV program costs.

California also allows High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane access to low emission and energy-efficient vehicles to incentivize their use and promote the State’s sustainability and climate preparedness objectives. California supports an overall increase in Federal transportation spending, including a . the development of federal programs in the field of motor vehicle emission control will be employed to determine: (1) whether the states would have the basic authority to control automobile emissions in the absence of any federal action; (2) whether the states could act concurrently with the federal. The U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Scientific and Technical Information. A “low-emission vehicle” (LEV) is defined in Health and Safety Code Section This regulatory authority is being implemented in the proposed rule in a two-phase approach. In the initial first years of rule implementation, affected public fleets will be required to purchase gasoline or alternative fuel vehicles that are certified by.

Because of their numbers and activity, these vehicles have historically contributed the most to total mobile-source emissions. As discussed in earlier chapters, California’s low-emission-vehicle (LEV) program, introduced in , was an important milestone that helped define today’s California and federal on-road emissions standards. California's emissions standards are stricter than the federal EPA requirements. They're more stringent on hydrocarbon and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions -- which become smog-- from vehicles, and they have heavier requirements that older construction vehicles be retrofitted so that they operate rnia's gasoline also has less sulfur, benzene and hydrocarbons than most gasoline sold.

Under the Energy Policy Act (EPAct) of75% of new light-duty vehicles acquired by covered federal fleets must be alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs). As amended in JanuarySection of EPAct expands the definition of AFVs to include hybrid electric vehicles, fuel cell vehicles, and advanced lean burn vehicles.

Contracting by negotiation is used in many federal procurement actions. A public procurement contract (the least preferred route) The best way to explain contract vehicles is to compare disparate businesses.

Our discussion will center on two very different federal market players, (i) a small business new to the federal market, and (ii) a large prime contractor pursuing worldwide federal sales opportunities. The cornerstones of federal procurement are the Competition in Contracting Act ofwhich enhanced competition in federal procurement and established a variety of acquisition procedures, including competitive negotiation, and the Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act of and the Federal Acquisition Reform Act ofwhich simplified.

Frequently Asked QuestionsClean Air Act Requirements: Are there “Clean Air” standards that apply to the procurement of vehicles under FTA Guidelines?The Clean Air requirements apply to all contracts exceeding $, including indefinite quantities where the amount is expected to exceed $, in any year.

If the vehicle fails an emissions test during the vehicle's first 2 years/24, miles (8 years/80, miles for specified major components), the manufacturer must make repairs or modifications necessary to allow the vehicle to pass.

Details: 1/17/Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO): Solicitation of Project Proposals for the Low or No Emission Program (Low-No Program).The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announces the availability of $ million of Fiscal Year funds for the purchase or lease of low or no emission vehicles as well as related equipment or facilities.

United States vehicle emission standards are set through a combination of legislative mandates enacted by Congress through Clean Air Act (CAA) amendments of and beyond, and executive regulations managed nationally by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and more recently along with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).).

These standard cover common motor. *A petrol vehicle emits times more kg CO 2-e/unit than the equivalent low emission vehicle. For example, if you took a low emission compact auto vehicle between Auckland airport and Auckland CBD (approximately 30 km in distance) you would stop kgCO 2 e going into the atmosphere.

GSA develops governmentwide regulations and policies that encourage agencies to use the best, most cost-effective management practices. The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) outlines the procedures to be used by DOD for acquiring armored commercial passenger-carrying vehicles (ACPVs).

Procurement of these vehicles can occur through direct purchase from a commercial manufacturer, the General Services Administration (GSA) Schedules Program, and through other agencies.

INTRODUCTION. Under the Clean Air Act Amendments of ("CAA"),(1) the United States Environmental Protection Agency ("U.S. EPA" or "EPA") is expressly prohibited from enforcing more stringent motor vehicle emissions standards until the year (2) However, Congress granted the State of California a preemption waiver permitting that state alone to adopt stricter standards.(3) Congress.

This bill would allow a vehicle manufacturer person who holds an Internet hybrid vehicle sales license, as provided for in the bill, or its agent a designated authorized person, to engage in the business of directly selling to an unlicensed person the manufacturer's a new motor vehicle that meets the state's super ultra-low-emission vehicle (SULEV) standard for exhaust emissions and the.

These standards may be adopted by other states, and currently a dozen other states and the District of Columbia use California programs as part of their solution to.

), Technical Standards. The Tier 1 final rule was published on June 5,and phased-in progressively between and Tier 1 was in effect until for passenger vehicles and LLDT, and until for heavy light-duty trucks (HLDT).

Tier 1 also regulates evaporative emissions; these requirements are summarized on the EPA’s website. Vehicle Categories Tier 1 standards applied to all. Authorizes the Secretary to develop, conduct, and administer highway technology training, and to develop and fund summer transportation institutes.

(Sec. ) Authorizes a State to permit a vehicle with fewer than two occupants to operate in high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes if the vehicle is certified as an Inherently Low-Emission Vehicle.

Since passage of the Energy Policy Act (EPAct) inthe U.S. federal government has imposed procurement restrictions on state government fleets. The Federal Tier 3 vehicle program will reduce both tailpipe and evaporative emissions from passenger cars, light-duty trucks, medium-duty passenger vehicles, and some heavy-duty vehicles.

The gasoline sulfur standard will enable more stringent vehicle emissions standards and will make emissions control systems more effective. The manufacturers proposed a "state" low-emission vehicle program -- now called the "National Low-Emission Vehicle" ("NLEV" or "National LEV") program.(70) The NLEV program would, as its name suggests, provide for motor vehicle emissions standards more stringent than the current federal standards in the 49 states other than California.

Vehicle Acquisition and Fuel Use Requirements for Federal Fleets: Under the Energy Policy Act (EPAct) of75% of new light-duty vehicles acquired by covered federal fleets must be alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs). As amended in JanuarySection of EPAct defines AFVs to include hybrid electric vehicles, fuel cell vehicles, and.
