Infrastructure for the Future: How Microgrids are Accelerating Transportation Sector Decarbonization

Sponsored by:

Transportation emits the most greenhouse gases of any U.S. sector, making fleet electrification a top priority of the historic Infrastructure Investment and Jobs and Inflation Reduction Acts. However, today’s aging utility grids aren’t ready to meet rapidly rising energy demand from passenger, medium-, and heavy-duty electric vehicles. Public and private fleet owners are turning to behind-the-meter microgrids to overcome this challenge and achieve their sustainability and energy reliability goals.

In this webinar, transportation leaders discussed proven strategies for accelerating the transition to a zero-emission future.

  • Transit: Montgomery County, Maryland officials are pioneering the EV transformation with an integrated microgrid and EV bus charging system that will abate 168,000 metric tons of CO2.
  • Distribution & Logistics: Distribution innovators explained the efficiency and sustainability benefits for warehouses and private fleet owners from on-site solar and EV charging.
  • Ports: See how ports are utilizing microgrid technology to support electrification of ground vehicles and meet ambitious energy resilience and zero-emission goals.
