Alternative fuels, vehicles get boost in San Diego | UTSanDiego.com Mobile

Alternative fuel vehicles and their devotees are getting a boost in San Diego, under a state grant awarded to the locally based California Center for Sustainable Energy.

The California Energy Commission is funding the new program for developing resources for alternative fuel and advanced vehicles in Southern California.

A new entity — the Southern California Center for Alternative Fuels and Advanced Vehicle Technology — will have two physical locations in San Diego and Los Angeles.

“Southern California already boasts tremendous assets in driving the consumer-side of the advanced transportation market,” said Bill Allen, president of the Los Angeles County Economic Development Center, which is heading up the effort. “Our goal with this critically important Center is to also leverage these assets to ensure that we’re a leading developer, designer and producer of these lower-emission technologies.”

Alternative fuel vehicles and their devotees are getting a boost in San Diego, under a state grant awarded to the locally based California Center for Sustainable Energy.

The California Energy Commission is funding the new program for developing resources for alternative fuel and advanced vehicles in Southern California.

A new entity — the Southern California Center for Alternative Fuels and Advanced Vehicle Technology — will have two physical locations in San Diego and Los Angeles.

“Southern California already boasts tremendous assets in driving the consumer-side of the advanced transportation market,” said Bill Allen, president of the Los Angeles County Economic Development Center, which is heading up the effort. “Our goal with this critically important Center is to also leverage these assets to ensure that we’re a leading developer, designer and producer of these lower-emission technologies.”

Len Hering, director of the California Center for Sustainable Energy of CCSE, said the new centers are intended to help municipalities, government agencies and industry partners expand the market for clean transportation vehicles and technologies.

CCSE already administers clean-vehicle rebates for the state of California, and runs an array of programs devoted to expanding electric and alternative-vehicle adoption and infrastructure.

The new Los Angeles center will be managed by the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator at the La Kretz Innovation Campus in the downtown area.

Other partners receiving funding include the UCLA Smart Grid Energy Research Center and the Luskin Center for Innovation, Advanced Sustainability Institute, California State University-Los Angeles and the Inland Empire Economic Partnership.
