Marine Vessels & Ports Sector
The objective of the Marine Vessels and Ports Workgroup is to share information and seek funding for a variety of projects including: alternative fuel use for vessels and on-shore equipment, equipment retrofits and early retirement, and cold ironing for ocean-going vessels and plug-in power for on-shore equipment. If you would like to join the Marine Vessels and Ports Workgroup, please contact La Weeda Ward at (213) 244-1812. For information on WCC projects in this sector, see this link.
We hope you can join us for the next West Coast Collaborative webinar Tuesday, May 21 from 11-1pm PDT.
This will be the first of a series of webinars that will be focused on various freight technologies, projects and activities. This webinar will provide an overview of a workshop held in Diamond Bar in April: Transitioning to Zero Emission Freight Transport Technologies Symposium. The agenda and presentations from this Symposium can be found here.
For those who will not be in front of a computer during this time, the Powerpoint presentations (PDF) are attached for the overview, provided by Henry Hogo, SCAQMD and the locomotive session, provided by Harold Holmes, ARB. The truck and ports discussions will not have PowerPoint presentations, instead, please see the presentations from the April workshop in Diamond Bar.
