The LA region aims to be powered 100% by renewable energy by 2035. To achieve this ambitious goal, it’s essential that LA, as a home to significant industrial activity - establish global leadership in the decarbonization of heavy industry and major fleets.
Thankfully clean technology and policy innovations are emerging to drive electrification and the use of clean hydrogen at scale.
The LA region can show global leadership by decarbonizing heavy industry and building an electric-powered transit and transportation system.
CityAge, in collaboration with Shell and Jacobs, will bring together the leaders shaping this vision with a digital event on July 12, 2022. A follow up focused roundtable will follow in September.
A Brief on the LA100 report by: Jacquelin Cochran, Director, Grid Planning and Analysis Center, NREL
Panel 1: How to Decarbonize Transit Fleets: Opportunities and Challenges
Decarbonizing LA’s transportation fleets is a foundational step toward LA’s clean energy future. What’s the path forward?
12:15 pm Panel 2: How to Decarbonize Port Operations: Opportunities and Challenges
The LA and Long Beach ports have zero-emission goals for significant aspects of port-related operations, which will impact both port operations themselves and the thousands of businesses that service them - what are the opportunities and challenges of these initiatives?
Panel 3: LA’s Opportunity: Building a Hydrogen Hub
A broad LA coalition is taking shape to grasp the opportunity to lead the global trend toward decarbonizing people and goods movement and build a hydrogen economy. An update from leaders of that initiative.
Conclusion: How to Move Fast - The Path Forward
The previous sessions outlined key strategies for LA’s energy transition, from port activities through major fleets. What key lessons have emerged, and how do we apply them as fast as possible to make Decarbonize: LA a reality?
