Event Details

Changes in transport technology, evolving shipping practices, and policy developments on climate and environmental justice create an urgent need for market-relevant research to accelerate goods-movement and maritime port decarbonization.  This conference will forge new collaboration among freight industries, equipment manufacturers, government, university centers and community leaders on efforts to achieve zero emission port and freight operations. 

This two-day conference is designed to identify a research agenda and roadmap on freight decarbonization. The first day of panels and presentations is open to the public. The second-day will be devoted to work group meetings and is by invite only. 


Zero Emission Ports & Freight is part of the Philomathia Forum Energy & Environment series. The Philomathia Foundation advances UC Berkeley's research in energy and climate research. Find out more here.
