ms-mailings -- Workshop to Discuss Strategy to Increase Deployment of Zero-Emission Vehicles that Transport Passengers to and from California Airports Posted: 01 Feb 2017 10:19:48
The Air Resources Board (ARB) invites you to participate in a public workshop on Wednesday, February 22, 2017, to begin the discussion on how to accelerate the deployment of zero-emission transportation at airports. The meeting will be held at the following time and place: Date: Wednesday, February 22, 2017 Time: 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Place: Cal/EPA Headquarters Building Sierra Hearing Room 1001 I Street, Second Floor Sacramento, California 95814 A meeting notice for the workshop is posted at https://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/asb/asbmtgs.htm, and more information on about the ARB’s airport shuttle bus effort can be found at https://www.arb.ca.gov/asb/asb.htm. The workshop will be webcast for those who cannot participate in person and may be accessed at https://video.calepa.ca.gov/ on the day of the workshop. Staff’s presentation and related materials will be available prior to the workshop at https://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/asb/asb.htm. Directions to Cal/EPA headquarters and public transit can be found at: http://www.calepa.ca.gov/EPAbldg/location.htm. If you have questions regarding the workshop, please contact Katherine Garrison at (916) 322-1522 or Katherine.Garrison@arb.ca.gov. Background: Promoting the development and use of zero-emission airport transportation will help ARB achieve the emission reduction strategies outlined in the Mobile Source Strategy, Draft State Implementation Plan and the Sustainable Freight Action Plan. Vehicles such as airport shuttle buses that operate on fixed routes, have stop-and-go operations, maintain low average speeds, and are centrally maintained and fueled are ideal candidates for targeting zero-emission electric technologies. Additionally, experience gained from demonstrating the viability zero-emission operation in these fleets will benefit other heavy-duty on-road markets and enable cleaner transportation in other fields. The overall goals of this effort will: • Complement existing programs to achieve NOx and GHG emission reductions through the use of zero-emission technology. • Increase the penetration of the first wave of zero-emission heavy-duty technology into transportation applications at airports, such as buses that transport passengers to and from car parking lots and airport terminals as well as those that transport passengers to airport car rental facilities.
