Clean Miles Standard
With the enactment of SB 1014 (2018), the Air Resources Board and the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) will develop and implement new requirements to curb greenhouse gas emissions as new mobility options grow at a rapid pace.
The transportation sector accounts for almost 50 percent of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in California when accounting for fuel production, with light-duty vehicles making up 70 percent of the transportation sector’s direct emissions. With the enactment of SB 1014 (2018) – the Clean Miles Standard and Incentive Program – the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) will develop and implement new requirements to curb greenhouse gas emissions as new mobility options grow at a rapid pace.
On May 20, 2021, the Air Resources Board adopted a regulation to require electrification of ride-hailing companies starting in 2023 with annual targets requiring zero grams of CO2 greenhouse gas emissions and 90 percent of passenger miles travelled to be fully electric by 2030.
On November 18, 2021, the Commission opened Proceeding R.21-11-014 to implement Senate Bill 1014 - California Clean Miles Standard (CMS). The Order Instituting Rulemaking (OIR) requested party comments on 11 preliminarily identified issues to inform a Scoping Memo for the proceeding. Party comments and replies were received by January 7 and January 18, 2022, respectively. A Prehearing Conference was held on February 11, 2022.
On March 8, 2022, the Consumer Protection & Enforcement Division staff will hold a public workshop on CMS. The all-day workshop will include panels, presentations, and breakout group discussions covering funding and financing zero emission vehicles, low- and moderate-income drivers and communities, regulatory framework, and GHG Reduction Plans. The workshop is an opportunity for open discussion on the Clean Miles Standard, and anyone interested in the proceeding is welcome to participate.
