The California Energy Commission (CEC) on Wednesday awarded more than $36 million for clean energy freight transportation in the Los Angeles/Long Beach ports and other clean transportation projects -- $24 million for freight transportation and $12 million for other projects. The South Coast Air Quality Management District and Long Beach Harbor Department each received $10 million, and the Los Angeles Harbor Department received $4.5 million to carry out field demonstrations of medium- and heavy-duty cargo handling equipment that have zero and near-zero emissions. Last year, CEC launched the state's Sustainable Freight Action Plan, supported by grants from the statewide alternative/renewable fuel and vehicle technology program. Zero emission and near-zero emission technologies are involved in the program.
