Zero emissions goods movement is critical to the Los Angeles region because 40% of the nation’s inbound containers enter the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach and truck through the region. To understand the challenges and opportunities for zero emissions goods movement and the need for pilots and infrastructure, LACI, in collaboration with the California Air Resources Board (CARB), the California Energy Commission (CEC), and the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, issued a Request for Information (RFI) for zero emission trucks. This is part of the work of the Transportation Electrification Partnership which convenes key stakeholders across public and private sectors to accelerate transportation electrification
Findings will include:
- The current and future development of medium- and heavy-duty zero emission trucks, including EV solutions
- The state of charging infrastructure for goods movement
- A spotlight on compelling zero emission truck and infrastructure pilot concepts
- Recommendations from LACI and the RFI partners on next steps.
