Technology focus areas
In order to encourage technology development in critical areas that best serve the Valley’s needs to reach attainment, the District has established this set of technology focus areas tailored for Valley businesses and sources of emissions:
Back to top
- Renewable Energy - projects that overcome the barriers to utilizing renewable energy, such as remote solar energy/storage, vehicle-to-grid, wind energy, or peak shaving systems
- Waste Solutions - Waste systems or technologies to minimize or eliminate emissions from existing waste management systems and processes, including waste to fuel systems (such as dairy digesters and other bio-fuel applications).
- Mobile Sources - retrofit technologies for reducing particulate and/or NOX emissions from heavy-duty trucks, clean alternative fuels, vehicle hybridization, and efficiency improvements to on-road or off-road equipment
Ongoing Proposal Submittal
The TAP will accept written proposal and concept papers for new technology on an ongoing basis. The District staff will review and critique these proposals. A list of potential projects from the submitted proposals, including evaluations of potential projects will be maintained and will be utilized for consideration when establishing technology focus areas and funding allocations for technology advancement.
