cargo -- $10 Million Available for Electrifying Cargo Transportation Vehicles and Infrastructure

Posted: 23 Mar 2012 11:10:50
Energy Department Announces up to $10 Million to Promote Zero
Emission Cargo Transport Vehicles . 

U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced up to $10 million
available this year to demonstrate and deploy electric
transportation technologies for cargo vehicles, such as trucks
and forklifts.  Electrifying cargo transportation vehicles and
infrastructure will slash petroleum use, carbon emissions, and
air pollution at transportation hubs, such as ports.  DOE seeks
applicants for this funding to demonstrate cost-effective zero
emission cargo transport systems and collect detailed performance
and cost data to analyze the benefits and viability of this
approach to freight transportation.

This funding opportunity is open to local governments and private
companies, with federal funds matched in a 50% cost share. 
Please note that eligibility is restricted to local governments,
ports, metropolitan transportation authorities, air pollution
control districts, or combinations thereof operating in and/or
governing either the Los Angeles South Coast Air basin (8-hour
ozone) nonattainment area or the Houston-Galveston-Brazoria
nonattainment area.

Cargo handling equipment is used to transfer goods or perform
maintenance and repair activities and includes equipment such as
yard trucks (hostlers), rubber-tired gantry cranes, top handlers,
side handlers, forklifts, and loaders, just to name a few.  The
Regulation for Mobile Cargo Handling Equipment at Ports and
Intermodal Rail Yards was adopted in December 2005 to reduce
diesel particulate matter in communities located near ports and
intermodal rail yards.  Additional information on the regulation
is available at the following link:
