Forth Webinar: Port Electrification Strategies and Programs

April 27, 2021 @ 10:00 – 11:00

Ports are vital in the way we move billions of tons of global commerce, annually. Port electrification can impact the environmental and economic well-being of local communities.

From installing electric charging stations, electrifying shuttles, and the vehicles used to move the goods, the potential to decrease the emissions through port electrification is very high.

The Volvo LIGHTS project in Southern California is an example of transforming goods movement by introducing zero-emission battery-electric trucks and equipment into the market at scale. The Port of Portland, Oregon climate change strategy focuses on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to changing climate. With a commitment to 100 percent renewable electricity the port is electrifying fleet and installing charging stations.

This webinar will highlight current strategies to electrify ports and the economic and environmental benefits of port electrification.
