Zero-Emission Airport Ground Support Equipment
Promoting the development and use of zero-emission airport ground support equipment (airport GSE) will help CARB achieve the emission reduction strategies outlined in the Mobile Source Strategy, State Implementation Plan and Sustainable Freight Action Plan. The zero-emission airport GSE measure will act as a catalyst to further adoption of zero-emission equipment in the off-road sector, facilitate the transfer of technology to suitable heavier duty-cycle applications, and expand use of zero-emission infrastructure.
Airport GSE are used in airport operations and perform a wide variety of functions including providing power to aircraft; transporting cargo, baggage, and passengers to and from aircraft; and providing aircraft maintenance and fueling.
This measure is scheduled for Board consideration in late 2020.
