arbcombo -- Public Information Release of 2013 Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventory and Mandatory Greenhouse Gas Reporting Data Evaluation

The California Air Resources Board (ARB) will make available on
June 30, 2015,at noon (12:00 PM) Pacific Time, the 2013
California Greenhouse gas (GHG) Emission Inventory data and an
evaluation of the 2013 Mandatory Greenhouse Gas Reporting data.
The information posted will include the 2013 GHG emission
inventory data; supporting documentation including an analysis of
emissions trends; as well as an evaluation of the 2013 GHG data
reported pursuant to the Mandatory Greenhouse Gas Reporting
Regulation (MRR).

The 2013 GHG emission inventory data and supporting documentation
will be available at ARB's GHG Emission Inventory website at:

http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/inventory/inventory.htm

The evaluation of the 2013 MRR data will be available at both the
Cap-and-Trade and Mandatory GHG Reporting websites:

http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/capandtrade/capandtrade.htm
http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/reporting/ghg-rep/ghg-rep.htm

In addition to the evaluation of the 2013 MRR data, staff will
post updated emissions data summary spreadsheets for the 2010,
2011, and 2012 data reporting years, to reflect minor revisions.

BACKGROUND:

ARB is responsible for developing and maintaining California's
inventory of GHG emissions. An updated GHG emission inventory is
published annually to reflect current data. The new GHG inventory
covers years 2000 to 2013. The emission estimates are statewide
estimates that rely on state, regional or national data sources,
and on aggregated facility-specific emissions data reported
pursuant to the MRR. Accompanying the GHG inventory data is the
"Trends of Emissions and Other Indicators" report, which explains
trends in statewide GHG emissions from major sectors.

More information can be found at:
http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/inventory/inventory.htm

The California Cap on Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Market-Based
Compliance Mechanisms Regulation (Regulation) was adopted by the
California Air Resources Board in October of 2011, and formally
went into effect January 1, 2012. Entities subject to the
Regulation will have a compliance obligation for their GHG
emissions beginning on January 1, 2013. The Regulation was
amended in early 2013 to link the California and Québec programs
beginning January 1, 2014.

More information about the California Cap-and-Trade Program is
available here:
http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/capandtrade/capandtrade.htm.

The Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (Assembly Bill 32, or AB
32) requires ARB to adopt regulations for the mandatory reporting
of GHG emissions. The Regulation for the Mandatory Reporting of
Greenhouse Gas Emissions went into effect on January 1, 2009.
Over 700 entities, including facilities, fuel suppliers, and
electric power importers, are required to report their GHG
emissions data to ARB. Emissions data reports from entities with
25,000 metric tons carbon dioxide equivalent or greater emissions
must be verified by ARB-accredited third-party verifiers. The
information in the emissions data reports is used to support
ARB's climate change programs, including California's
Cap-and-Trade Program.

More information about the Mandatory GHG Reporting Program is
available here:

arbcombo -- Solicitation for the Fiscal Year 2014-15 Zero-Emission Drayage Truck Demonstration Project

The California Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) is pleased to
announce its Grant Solicitation for the Zero-Emission Drayage
Truck Demonstration Project. The funding opportunity was
approved by the Board as part of the Fiscal Year 2014-15 Funding
Plan for the Assembly Bill 118 Air Quality Improvement Program
and Low Carbon Transportation Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund
Investments. Up to $23,658,500 is available for this project.
This project, along with the separate Multi-Source Facility
Demonstration Project, is part of a $50 million allocation for
advanced technology freight demonstrations. These two projects
complement a separate project to deploy early commercial
zero-emission trucks and buses which will be solicited later this
year. Solicitations for each Fiscal Year 2014-15 demonstration
and pilot project will be released separately.

Projects funded under this solicitation will demonstrate full
zero-emission drayage trucks, and drayage trucks that offer
zero-emission miles (near zero-emission) by employing on-board
range extending internal combustion engines or other
technologies.

California-based public agencies such as air districts, ports,
and local government entities or agencies and California-based
non-profit organizations with expertise implementing large scale
advanced technology demonstrations and requisite knowledge of
drayage truck operations may apply via this solicitation to
become the demonstration project Grantee(s). Applications are
due to ARB by 5:00 p.m., September 24, 2015.

ARB will hold an Applicant Workshop to answer questions regarding
this Grant Solicitation on July 16, 2015. The Applicant Workshop
will provide an opportunity for potential applicants to ask
clarifying questions regarding general application requirements.
The meeting will be held at the following date and time:

Date: July 16, 2015
Time: 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (Pacific)
Place: Cal/EPA Headquarters
Conference Room 710
1001 I Street, Sacramento, California 95814

Teleconference Information:

Call-in Phone Number: 800-593-0695
Passcode: 37043

Written questions submitted before the Applicant Workshop will be
given priority. Questions may be emailed to Mr. Earl Landberg at
earl.landberg@arb.ca.gov. Questions may be submitted by 5:00
p.m., July 14, 2015.

The Grant Solicitation and all associated documents may be found
on ARB's webpage at
http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/aqip/solicitations.htm.

323-1384.

Background: The Advanced Technology Freight Demonstration
Projects under the Low Carbon Transportation Greenhouse Gas
Reduction Fund Investments accelerate the introduction of
advanced emission reducing technologies that are on the cusp of
commercialization into the California marketplace. A public
investment in these technologies helps to achieve significant
emission reductions in greenhouse gases, criteria pollutants and
toxic air contaminants, sooner than would be possible otherwise.
This commitment from the State encourages industry to
expeditiously invent, develop, test, and introduce cutting edge
emission reducing technologies. Finally, Advanced Technology
Freight Demonstration Projects leverage public investment with
private capital and ingenuity to go beyond what is currently at
the technological forefront. This project will provide
greenhouse gas, criteria pollutant, and toxic air contaminant
emission reduction benefits to specific disadvantaged
communities. Eligible disadvantaged communities are identified
by the California Environmental Protection Agency's California
Communities Environmental Health Environmental Health Screening
Tool (CalEnviroScreen 2.0) that assesses all census tracts in the
State to identify areas disproportionately burdened by and
vulnerable to multiple sources of pollution.
