Clean Fuel Program Process

Energy Consumption Data Collection

e-Mission Control Is Your Partner – We track your fleet and intake data on your fleet size, makeup and energy consumption on a quarterly basis. If needed, we help facilitate meter installation at your facility at no cost to you.

Data Reporting and Credit Generation

eMC Submits All Reports – We register our partners in all appropriate state systems, manage reporting submissions, system management and all other government-interaction needed to generate LCFS or CFP credits.

Credit Transaction and Monetization

e-Mission Control Generates and Trades Your Credits – We trade your credits on an open market to oil producers and refiners required to purchase them. We leverage the best pricing by combining your credits with the rest of our portfolio.

Incentive Remittance Every 90 Days

You Are Issued Payments Every Quarter – Once registered, eMC manages the entire process again every 90-days. You will be issued incentive payments to help advance your company’s sustainability initiatives.

The e-Mission Control Advantage

emc consultation

To show the significant value of the LCFS or CFP programs, we provide free, preliminary incentive estimates based on actual fleet and energy consumption information. Though we are able to use some industry standard information for estimates, we confirm all data prior to registration with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) or Oregon’s Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). The most recent averages of LCFS or CFP and REC prices are used in our calculations. If you would like a free evaluation of your fleet’s LCFS or CFP value, contact us today.

As part of eMC’s service offering, zero-emission electricity is procured to optimize our partners’ portfolios via the “Book and Claim” procedures outlined by CARB and DEQ. In practice, we purchase solar-based Renewable Energy Certificates (REC’s, kWh produced by solar farms) and retire them within the LCFS and CFP registration systems. It results in a net-positive financial return, as the use of zero-emission electricity generates approximately 20-30% more credits than grid-based electricity. The cost of the RECs are outweighed by the additional LCFS or CFP credit value. Contact us today for more information.

eMC has developed proprietary software with the sole purpose of streamlining and automating all aspects of the LCFS or CFP programs. Developed in an effort to continue building on our core mission of adding significant value and transparency to the LCFS and CFP programs for our partners and making it easier for you to access relevant information such as your Quarterly Incentive Summaries and payment volumes, contracts, facility registrations, and approval statuses, current fleet assets, and a host of other helpful guidance. To get started, contact us today.

Each partner is assigned a Partner Success Representative who jumps into action where our Enrollment Team leaves off. Your eMC representative works closely with your team during the onboarding process to ensure satisfaction and long-term success. Your representative will also assist in developing and delivering educational material on carbon reduction programs in your market, lead virtual demonstrations of eMC’s suite of software tools and assist with the fleet and operational data collection process. To get started earning LCFS or CFP revenue, contact us today.

If required, at no cost to you and planned directly with your team, eMC will install non-invasive kWh metering equipment on-site to facilitate access to needed energy consumption data for equipment requiring metering. For more information on metering equipment installation or how it works, contact us today.

We view our partners as Green Fleet Pioneers and give them the tools they need to help communicate the importance of their participation in clean fuel programs. We have developed a series of assets our GFPs can use. They receive a program logo they can use on marketing assets, pre-built social media posts, a press release and stickers for their fleet. Green marketing made easy! Contact us to become a Green Fleet Pioneer today!

States With Active Clean Fuel Programs

Based in Sacramento, California, e-Mission Control is tightly-aligned with CARB and DEQ and closely monitors low carbon and clean fuel programs as regulations develop in new states and territories. Each state comes with its own unique administrative requirements but with our proprietary process, we quickly implement changes to regulations and reporting requirements and are prepared to accommodate the launch of similar programs in other states.

California, Oregon, and British Columbia have existing Low Carbon programs. Washington State’s governor recently signed HB 1091 to put the Clean Fuel Standard into effect at the beginning of 2023 while various other states have legislation quickly evolving. e-Mission control keeps you up-to-date in each area relevant to you, providing the same turn-key solutions.

Enroll Today

We have two methods of onboarding your zero-emission fleet and electric equipment. For smaller fleets, we recommend self enrollment which is a fast and easy way to get your fleet enrolled and earning clean fuel credits. For larger fleets, we recommend our concierge enrollment where an e-Mission Control representative walks you through the entire process, making sure each piece of equipment is accurately documented.

Self-Enrollment

Designed for smaller electric fleets (from 1-10 pieces of equipment) we have developed a self-enrollment portal where you can update fleet information and manage your fleet data for a more hands-on approach. Afterwards, you will be assigned a Partner Success Representative and e-Mission Control will manage your data submission and transact your credits. To get started today, go to our software platform.

Concierge Enrollment

Designed for electric fleets larger than 10 pieces or operators requiring additional support with onboarding and management, we assign a ZE Program Manager to work with your team and facilitate the enrollment of your zero-emission fleet. Additionally, each quarter an eMC Partner Success Representative works with you to ensure you are fully capitalizing on your state’s low carbon fuel program.

Frequently Asked Questions

Real-time metered data is required for all equipment types other than electric forklifts. Electric forklift fleets are permitted to use a CARB-approved calculation method that requires lift-, charger-, and battery-specific data points including voltage, AH capacity, model year, charger efficiency ratings, average depth of discharge, etc. as well as facility operational information on charge cycles and shifts per day. This information must be reviewed, at minimum, quarterly.

Our free customer portal, My-eMC, was developed in an effort to continue building on our core mission of adding significant value and transparency to the LCFS program for our partners and make it easier for you to access relevant information such as your eMC Quarterly Incentive Summaries and payment volumes, contracts, facility registrations and approval statuses, current fleet assets, and a host of other helpful guidance. We use this system to update fleet and operations assets in real-time, so as to maximize your credit generation capabilities.

LCFS or CFP credit generation is relative to the quantity of electricity supplied to your fleet. Common equipment types include forklifts and pallet jacks, commercial on-road fleets and chargers, hybrid refrigeration units, municipal fleet vehicles, cargo-handling equipment, shore-power/cold-ironing and more. For all equipment other than forklifts and pallet jacks, direct metering is required and all slave loads need to be accounted for and addressed. See our page on Metering for more information. For forklifts and pallet jacks, electricity consumption can be estimated based on a variety of fleet and business operation variables.

FSE stands for “Fuel Supply Equipment” which is how agencies track data submission across equipment categories. For on-road vehicle equipment categories, the FSE is the individual vehicle charger. For other categories, such as eCHE, eMHE, and eTRU’s, the FSE can be defined as the facility or location where charging occurs. Data is submitted on a per-FSE basis.

For initial estimates: With few exceptions, we can use whatever information you have on hand along with duty cycle assumptions, industry standards, and current market data to provide an estimate of incentive value. No need to make a concerted effort to collect data beyond what is already currently available.

For actual registration and participation: Ultimately, e-Mission Control will need a variety of variables for registration and reporting including serial number, battery capacities, voltages, model years, and some information on typical shift operation profiles. If this information is not readily available or difficult to collect, with your approval, e-Mission Control can conduct on-site visits to collect necessary information.

The LCFS market is a supply and demand market subject to many influencing factors including: fossil fuel consumption volumes, new biofuel project deployment, regulatory proceedings and outlook, electrical energy consumption and prices, and many others.

The LCFS/CFP operates as an open market, where credit generators contract and sell credits directly to regulated entities like oil producers, importers, and blenders. Funds to support electrification efforts come directly from these entities to eMC and are distributed to our partners. These are NOT public funds/tax dollars and can be stacked with other publicly-funded incentive programs you may already be receiving.

All transportation fuels are apart of the program, including gasoline and diesel (deficit generators) as well as low-carbon fuels such as renewable fuels, biofuels, and electricity (credit generators). e-Mission Control works with companies and fleets utilizing electricity as a fuel source as we promote the transportation economy electrifying over the decades to come.

Yes and no. e-Mission Control manages “book and claim” processes for you, which means we will procure zero-emission electricity for your entire fleet whether or not you have solar on site, resulting in a net-positive financial gain (the cost of zero-emission electricity is outweighed by the additional credit generation from the LCFS/CFP program). However, if you have qualified solar assets on site we can help facilitate additional revenue generation from REC creation within your local RPS program.
