CEC Awards Funding For Clean Energy Projects

On May 15, 2019, the California Energy Commission (CEC) approved approximately $11 million for clean energy demonstration projects that include biofuels, renewable gas, and microgrids. Funded by CEC’s Alternative and Renewable Fuels and Vehicle Technology Program, in support of clean transportation innovation, $2 million from the total funds have been approved for technology and investment solutions in hopes of demonstrating cost-effective and more sustainable processes for creating biomethane for waste hauling trucks. Funding was also awarded in support of renewable gas production using wood waste from trees killed by beetle infestation and drought, as well as in support of the natural gas sector. Microgrids at schools and residential areas in the City of Lancaster are also being supported by a $5 million grant.  The project’s distributed energy resources will be integrated and managed by a virtual power plant that optimizes cost savings, grid resilience, and revenue generation. Further details can be found in CEC’s business meeting agenda.
