ACRAMENTO -- The California Energy Commission voted today to approve an $8 million grant to develop a high-capacity hydrogen fueling station to service and promote the expansion of zero-emission fuel cell electric Class 8 drayage trucks at the Port of Long Beach. Drayage trucks transport freight from a port to a warehouse or other location.

Promotion of fuel cell electric Class 8 drayage trucks can address the use of older vehicles with little or no emission controls that operate at the port. Promoting the use of zero-emission vehicles will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution at the nation’s second busiest container port. The station will source hydrogen from 100 percent renewable biogas.
