Conservation Tip

Driving consumes a huge amount of energy.  According to the 2005 edition of the Transportation Energy Data Book published by the U.S. Dept. of Energy, the transportation sector accounts for nearly 30% of total energy use in the U.S.  To make matters worse, we've been going backward in terms of motor vehicle energy efficiency.

Strategic Incentives

The Strategic Incentives Division (SID) of the Bay Area Air Quality Management District provides incentive funding for projects that improve air quality, reduce air quality health impacts and protect global climate. In order to achieve this goal, SID concentrates primarily on the reduction of criteria pollutants [such as nitrogen oxides, ozone precursors and particulate matter (PM)] and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Funding is primarily focused on mobile source projects that reduce or eliminate pollution from cars, trucks, marine vessels, locomotives, agricultural equipment, construction equipment and for projects that encourage the use of low emissions or zero emissions transportation such as shuttles and ride sharing, bicycle lanes and pedestrian paths.  Since 1992, SID has awarded over $400 million in grant funding to public agencies, private companies, and Bay Area residents for cost effective emission reduction projects.

SID also operates an Advanced Technology Demonstration program with the goal of advancing sustainable and renewable zero and near zero emissions reduction technologies for transportation. In addition in 2009, SID initiated a GHG reduction program with the goal of encouraging the widespread use of sustainable and renewable energy generation and energy efficient technologies in public buildings.

With many years of experience managing emission reduction projects, SID oversees approximately 1,000 projects funded by state, federal and local monies every year. These projects are funded by the Transportation Fund for Clean Air, over $20 million per year, the Carl Moyer Program, approximately $20 million per year when combined with Mobile Source Incentive Fund. Additional programs include a Lower Emission School Bus Program, over $6 million annually, a vehicle retirement program, over $7 million annually, and the California Goods Movement Bond program which provides up to $35 million annually for the retrofit and replacement of equipment involved in goods movement.
