A guide for terminal operators: How to find the right electrification option

The pressure is on to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Whether its governments making pledges or businesses themselves setting their own commitments to cut emissions by a certain date, the reality for port operations is that they must find a way to electrify. The only question is, “how?” Are there clean power options that mean business?

Lithium-ion batteries are emerging as proven power options for higher-capacity equipment, offering the reliable, rugged performance operations expect from a diesel, but with the benefits of an electric power train like reduced emissions, fuel consumption and lower maintenance costs. But there’s no one-size-fits-all solution to electrify fleets. Hydrogen fuel cells are another option, with several pilot programs for container handling equipment in the works.

Finding the right electrification option requires careful evaluation of power options, operational requirements, and factors like electrical grid capacity and hydrogen fuel availability. This panel discussion will help terminal operators understand electrification options and guide them in evaluating what’s best for their operation.
