Hydrogen-Powered Ports

On November 10, 2016, 100 government officials, terminal operators, environmental advocates, and technology solutions providers met at the Port of Los Angeles to discuss how the use of hydrogen in the nation’s seaports can dramatically reduce toxic air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions. The Port of LA is the busiest in the nation and the 9th largest in the world. It was an ideal setting for a workshop convened by the California Hydrogen Business Council to explore how hydrogen and fuel cells solutions at ports can address some of the most pressing environmental issues of today.

As fuel cell vehicle markets grow, experts weigh in on the convenience and safety of hydrogen

Consumers are reluctant to compromise on convenience, power, range or safety to support zero emissions vehicle (ZEV) mandates set out by ZEV States. Automakers understand this, as noted by an advanced technology manager of a leading manufacturer, “If society’s goals are to reduce carbon from the transportation side, they only have a few options and from our point of view, [hydrogen] is the most compelling one.”[i]

Furthering this idea, zeroemissions.org provides fuel cell vehicle (FCV) facts to support the idea of zero emissions with zero compromise.

Zero Emissions Vehicles Market an Opportunity for Congress

There are two types of commercialized zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) available to consumers today, the fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) and the battery electric vehicle (BEV). Both types of vehicles support greenhouse gas reductions, improve local air quality, and reduce reliance on oil. Many automakers are now investing in fuel cells as an essential technology to create consumer-friendly zero-carbon transportation options.

Saving and Shaving: Fuel Cells in Materials Handling Reduce Peak Electric Demand and Power Outage Risk

Among the cost drivers of electricity usage in your materials handling facility, lift truck battery chargers could be among the biggest electricity consumers. Battery chargers can also drive up additional annual peak demand charges for your building. Electricity demand during peak periods may result in utility surcharges, with the additional risk of stretching grid capacity to the point of power outages or need for usage restrictions.
