Port Houston Electrification Feasibility and Benefit Analysis Using TEMPO

Fleet electrification plays an important role in achieving regional climate and air quality goals. As the largest port on the Gulf Coast, Port Houston (POH) provides the great potential of fleet electrification due to its high truck volume and equipment movements each day. The goal of this study is to assess the feasibility of truck fleet and equipment electrification at POH. The electrification feasibility includes two aspects (1) the technological and operational barriers of electrification; (2) the fleet-wide benefits of electrification. Furthermore, this study will improve modeling capabilities related to port operations and emissions.
