Ensuring a stable supply of energy is crucial to the zero-emissions future the Harbor Commission envisions for the Port of Long Beach (POLB). In addition, its terminals are increasingly using electric equipment to move cargo, which require boosted energy resilience to keep power and cargo flowing. This session will discuss how the POLB, which handles over $194 billion in cargo per year, will use a $7.1 million microgrid to provide clean, reliable supply of electricity for critical operations while lowering costs. The Port will also serve as a model for other California seaports by compiling and sharing performance data, helping accelerate the development of microgrids to improve the effectiveness of renewables.
