Port of Stockton

MD/HD Electrification Blueprint

California Energy Commission Fuels
and Transportation Division

Project Details

The Port of Stockton MD/HD Electrification Blueprint Project (“Project”) seeks to leverage the Port’s knowledge gained through its ongoing Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) deployments and demonstrations in order to develop an actionable and replicable series of steps that should be undertaken by a small port or public utility to support public and private adoption of MD/HD ZEVs.

Thoughtful development of ZEV refueling infrastructure can support future development of microgrids, industrial hydrogen utilization, electrification of industrial processes, and combined heat and power systems at the Port.


Project Blueprint

Thanks for your interest, this project is still a work in progress. Come back again soon to follow our progress as we develop the Blueprint.

Anticipated Benefits To California

Specific Benefits from this Port of Stockton MD/HD Electrification Blueprint project include:

Business Opportunities: ZEV transition allows the Port of Stockton to engage with PG&E to assess existing capacity to support MD/HD ZEV refueling infrastructure. It will assess interconnection options, whether with its municipal utility service or PG&E, to minimize the need for electric substation and gas compressor upgrades. As needed, it will engage the local water utility to assess needs for water line upgrades; increased water delivery will enable green hydrogen electrolysis.

Support ZEV Sales: The Project will introduce the idea and benefits of MD/HD ZEVs to Port tenants and regional stakeholders.

Job Creation: The Blueprint aims to support job creation in the local community. It will document outreach and skills training programs to develop a viable pipeline of qualified workers to install, operate, and maintain MD/HD ZEV equipment.

Increased State Revenue: Implementation of the Blueprint will generate income taxes on the continued employment of professionals implementing this study.


General Benefits

Planning for the ZEV transition is a critical first step to the rapid deployment of technologies. Once deployed, ZEVs will provide significant health benefits to populations along major goods movement facilities and corridors, often identified by the California Environmental Protection Agency (Cal EPA) as disadvantaged communities (DAC. Additional general benefits include:

Increased State Revenue: ZEV sales tax. Since electricity and hydrogen can be produced in-state, additional state revenues are expected to be associated with new manufacturing.

Climate Pollutant Reduction: The ongoing deployment of ZEVs will eliminate tailpipe emissions, which are a significant source of climate pollutants such as particulate matter.

Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction: Electric and hydrogen fuels have significantly lower carbon intensities than fossil fuels. The transition to ZEVs will result in GHG emission reductions.

Petroleum Displacement: The transition to ZEVs will displace the need for petroleum fuels and reduce dependance on foreign fuels.

Impact to Low Income and Disadvantaged Communities (DAC): The reduction of tailpipe emissions along goods movement corridors is expected to improve local air quality for neighboring populations.

Localized Health Impact: While the Blueprint Project itself will not implement the benefits described above, organizing regional industrial stakeholders to support the Port of Stockton’s transition will help mobilize the ZEV transition in the state and realize critical emissions reductions targets earlier.
