Toward Zero-Emission Freight at Southern California’s Ports: Prospects, Pitfalls & Policy Needs
Friday, June 8, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm
The Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach bring more goods into the U.S. than any other ports in the country. Yet together the ports are the single largest source of air pollution in Southern California. Harbor commissioners have adopted an ambitious plan to transition to cleaner fuels for freight in and around the ports in the next two decades, but achieving the vision for clean air will require answers to important questions:
- What are the prospects and potential for various zero-emission technologies, including battery electrification, to reduce pollution?
- How can finance, permitting, and community engagement support the transition to cleaner fuels?
What new policy and industry actions are needed for cost-effective deployment?
