The application period for the Zero-Emission Trucking Program (ZETP) Call for Proposals (CFP) is closed.
The transportation of goods by medium and heavy-duty vehicles is a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in Canada. Meeting Canada's emissions reduction targets requires increased adoption of zero-emissions technologies in the trucking sector. To this end, the Government of Canada launched the Zero Emission Trucking Program (ZETP) as part of a suite of initiatives announced in the March 2022 Emissions Reduction Plan. The ZETP will contribute to the safe and secure deployment of medium- and heavy-duty zero-emission vehicles (MHZEV) on Canadian roads, and associated charging and refuelling infrastructure.
As part of its mandate, the ZETP is providing funding in the form of contributions to assist projects and activities that will help promote a clean transportation system by reducing air pollutants and/or greenhouse gas emissions from transportation. Specifically, the Program will help accelerate the safe deployment of zero emission trucks on Canadian roads by providing funding to provinces and territories to develop, modernize, and align the required codes, standards and regulations to enable and accelerate the safe deployment of zero emission medium and heavy-duty trucking in Canada, and their associated charging and refueling infrastructure.
Contributions will be provided to fund the following eligible activities to increase adoption of zero-emissions technologies in the trucking sector:
- Development of guidelines, codes, standards, and regulations, including research to inform their development.
- Undertake research and associated knowledge-sharing activities related to the evaluation, testing, or measurement of technologies that contribute to reducing or measuring emissions or improving emission intensity.
- The design, development, testing, demonstration, deployment and/or installation of technologies and equipment, including associated training.
- Supporting research and knowledge-sharing activities, and improved solutions that contribute to reducing or measuring emissions or improving emission intensity.
