The Fuels and Transportation Division (FTD) administers the California Energy Commission’s Clean Transportation Program (CTP). The Clean Transportation Program is California’s lead program in deploying zero-emission vehicle infrastructure to support electric vehicles and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. The CTP has an annual budget of approximately $100 million to invest in a broad portfolio of transportation projects and provides financial support for various projects. In addition, California has made a substantial one-time investment in infrastructure and manufacturing to support California’s economic recovery and ensure equitable access to infrastructure. Projects will:

• Reduce California’s use and dependence on petroleum transportation fuels and increase the use of alternative, renewable, and zero-emission fuels and advanced vehicle technologies.
• Expand zero-emission fueling infrastructure and fueling stations to support electric and hydrogen vehicles.
• Produce sustainable alternative and renewable low-carbon fuels in California.
• Reduce greenhouse gases to mitigate the worst impacts of the climate crisis.
• Improve public health and improve air quality.
• Expand the zero-emission fueling infrastructure available to existing fleets, public transit, and transportation corridors.
• Establish workforce training programs and conduct public outreach on the benefits of alternative transportation fuels and vehicle technologies.
• Support in-state manufacturing of zero-emission vehicles, components, and infrastructure.

Under the direct supervision of an Energy Resources Specialist III (Supervisory), the Energy Analysts will perform work of average difficulty in a wide variety of technical and analytical tasks associated with CTP agreement management activities in alternative and renewable fuels with an emphasis in zero- and near-zero emission vehicle and infrastructure areas, that transform California's fuel and vehicle types to meet the state's climate change policies.

The incumbents will manage funding agreements and contracts and assist with solicitations. They may assist in analytical studies, research, planning, and data assessment. The incumbents will gather, tabulate, and analyze data; assist with preparing reports; assist with reviewing and analyzing technical reports, papers, and correspondence; assist with public presentations; manage agreements and contracts; assist with solicitations; manage the tasks in the Scope of Work; and prepare correspondence.
