Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator’s I-710 Blueprint Webinar – Delivering the Goods: How LA County can Invest in Drayage Electrification Infrastructure
March 29 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
The Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator (LACI) and the Transportation Electrification Partnership put forth a call for action in 2019 for 40% of all drayage trucks serving the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach to be zero emission by 2028, and have steadily advocated for significant deployment of charging infrastructure to facilitate the rapid adoption of battery-electric trucks. To catalyze the needed investment, LACI has developed an investment framework for the heavily trafficked I-710 corridor that addresses the following questions:
– How much charging infrastructure investment in Los Angeles County is needed to support the Transportation Electrification Partnership’s 40% ZE Drayage Trucks by 2028 and the San Pedro Bay Ports target of 100% ZE Drayage by 2035?
– Where in Los Angeles County should stakeholders prioritize for early deployments of charging infrastructure? What criteria should we consider?
– How can the region cooperate to fund these investments and attract federal support?
– How can different entities in the goods movement industry deploy charging infrastructure to support the drayage?
To learn more about these and other insights, join LACI and its project partners, Coalition for Environmental Health and Justice & bp pulse fleet, as they share preliminary findings and recommendations from a California Energy Commission-funded Medium and Heavy-Duty Zero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Blueprint grant, An Investment Blueprint for Heavy-Duty Charging to Support Battery-Electric Drayage along the I-710 Corridor.
In this webinar, LACI and its partners will outline the framework and process they created to identify specific site locations with characteristics ideal for the installation of drayage truck charging infrastructure, an overview of the opportunities presented by different sites, and the investment required to meet regional targets for zero emission drayage truck deployment.
