Refuel: San Diego Regional Alternative Fuel Coordinating Council

SANDAG, in partnership with the San Diego Regional Clean Cities Coalition (SDRCCC) and the San Diego County Air Pollution Control District (SDAPCD), received an alternative fuel readiness planning grant from the California Energy Commission (CEC) to build upon the groundwork established by the San Diego Regional Plug-in Electric Vehicle Infrastructure working group (REVI). Over the next two years, this grant will expand upon that effort to address all alternative fuels (AF) and to continue to lay the framework for future AF planning efforts. 

As part of the CEC contract, a multi-stakeholder group, like the REVI, must be formed to advise on the development of a regional AF strategic readiness plan. Refuel: San Diego Regional Alternative Fuel Coordinating Council (Refuel) would serve as this group.

Refuel will work to help streamline and address barriers to AF adoption as well as provide best practices and real-time learning and sharing across jurisdictions. Refuel will identify the region’s current AF conditions through the completion of a regional AF survey and the development of an existing conditions report. This report will guide the development of fuel sector-specific resources through the creation of toolkits and will be compiled into a comprehensive regional AF plan.

Refuel meetings are open to the public and will be held once per quarter at the Center for Sustainable Energy. Meetings will be noticed by SANDAG and agendas and other documents will be posted here.
