In addition, ARB will make available aggregated data on vintage

BACKGROUND:

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 greenhouse
gas emissions beginning on January 1, 2013. The Regulation was
amended in early 2013 to link the California and Québec programs
beginning January 1, 2014.

The first compliance due date for covered entities under
California Cap-and-Trade Program was November 3, 2014. Covered
entities were required to surrender a sufficient number of
applicable compliance instruments to cover 30% of their 2013
emissions pursuant to section 95855 of the Cap-and-Trade
Regulation. These applicable compliance instruments include
allowances, as well as offset credits.

arbcombo -- Second Public Workshop on FY 2015-16 AQIP Funding Plan and GGRF Low-Carbon Transportation Investments

The Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) invites you to participate
in the second public workshop to discuss the development of the
Fiscal Year (FY) 2015-16 Funding Plan for the Air Quality
Improvement Program (AQIP) and Low Carbon Transportation
Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF) Investments. ARB staff will
seek input on existing project categories being funded through
these programs, potential new project categories, and recently
signed legislation affecting the implementation of these
programs.
The workshop will be held at the following time and place:

Date: Friday, January 23, 2015
Time: 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Place: Cal/EPA Headquarters Building
Coastal Hearing Room, 2nd Floor

attend in person.

Directions to Cal/EPA headquarters and public transit can be
found at: http://www.calepa.ca.gov/EPAbldg/location.htm

Transportation Investments, please go to:

If you have questions regarding the workshop, please contact
Andrew Panson at (916) 323-2809 or andrew.panson@arb.ca.gov

Background: AQIP is a voluntary mobile source incentive program
administered by ARB providing about $25 million per year through
2023. ARB focuses AQIP investments on technology advancing
projects that support California's long-term air quality and
climate change goals in addition to providing immediate emission
benefits. Each year, the Board approves the AQIP Funding Plan,
which serves as the blueprint for expending AQIP funds.

Cap-and-Trade auction proceeds provide an additional funding
source for ARB's advanced technology clean transportation
incentive programs, expanding the types of projects ARB has
funded through AQIP. The FY 2014-15 State budget appropriated
$200 million from GGRF to ARB for Low Carbon Transportation
projects to reduce greenhouse gas emissions with an emphasis on
low carbon freight and passenger transportation investments that
benefit disadvantaged communities. These investments are being
implemented through the administrative framework established by
AQIP. ARB expects to receive another appropriation for Low
Carbon Transportation investments from GGRF in the FY 2015-16
State Budget, so ARB staff intends to develop a joint Funding
Plan for the AQIP and GGRF funding sources for the FY 2015-16
funding cycle.
