As part of the Transportation Electrification Partnership LACI is issuing an RFI soliciting information from Engineering and Construction Management firms to execute small to large scale pilot transportation electrification projects.
We are focusing on three pilot projects:
- Zero Emission Mobility projects in Disadvantaged Communities:
- Zero emission mobility pilot projects will bring the benefits of the green economy to neighborhoods who often lack the solutions required for emissions-free mobility, yet are burdened with the poor air quality from various sources. The Pilot projects in disadvantaged communities will deploy zero emission mobility technology such as, EV Car Share, ZE Mobility Hub, EV Curbside Charging, and an EV adoption web platform.
- Urban Consolidation Center supporting a Zero Emission Delivery Zone:
- To build confidence in the market among city officials and corporations, LACI proposes, for a trial period (e.g., 12 months) to run a voluntary Urban Consolidation Center supporting zero emissions delivery in Los Angeles.
- Electrified Corridor along the lower I-710 – a coordinated pilot for emerging medium- and heavy-duty electric trucks, charging infrastructure, and behavior changes:
- LACI proposes to pool resources from key agencies and organizations to create a “seamless electrified corridor” pilot along the critical and heavily utilized lower I-710 corridor – a coordinated pilot for emerging medium- and heavy-duty electric trucks, charging infrastructure, and behavior changes. Starting with an initial deployment of 50 to 100 zero emissions drayage trucks with 1-2 fleet operators, LACI plans to develop a coordinated infrastructure corridor along the I-710. In the initial deployment, this would involve piloting at least three different types of EV infrastructure locations: third party logistics yards/distribution centers, mobile charging solutions or other publicly available solutions (other than truck stops), and truck stops, with the latter potentially offering co-mingled medium duty charging.
