Registering Fuel Supply Equipment

Currently registered FSE
“Fuel Supply Equipment" is the term that the Clean Fuels Program uses to describe the fueling equipment that dispenses alternative fuel into vehicles, from car chargers to propane tanks. This includes, but is not limited to, electric vehicle chargers, hydrogen fueling stations, and natural gas and propane fueling equipment. Credit generators in the Clean Fuels Program register their equipment in order to report the fuel they dispense and generate credits from that.

Each piece of equipment must be registered with the Clean Fuels Program by a credit generator through a process that demonstrates who the owner of the equipment is and that the equipment is operational. Once the equipment is registered, then it can begin generating credits by submitting quarterly reports on how much fuel was dispensed.

Applications for new FSE must be submitted in the first 45 days of the reporting period to give DEQ adequate time to process them for credit generation in that reporting period. For example, FSE applications submitted between Jan. 1 and Feb. 15 will be reviewed by DEQ by March 30 and can generate credits for the open reporting period. For more information on how to register FSE, see:
The rules governing this process were updated in the Clean Fuels Program Expansion 2022 Rulemaking and are effective as of Jan. 1, 2023. To implement these changes with existing FSE, DEQ has developed a call-in process to come into compliance with the new rules. 

In addition, the Frequently Asked Questions document has been updated with additional questions about reporting for electricity and registering fuel supply equipment. 

Webinar to discuss estimation methodology

Approved estimation methodology for electric forklift reporting

The estimation methodology below is only approved for use in the Q1 through Q3 2023 reports. Starting with the Q4 2023 report, reporting must be through actual metering.
