With millions of passengers flown each day and billions of pounds of freight moved per year, US airports depend on ground support equipment (GSE) to keep flights moving smoothly. As California and Oregon airports continue to electrify their fleets of GSE they will benefit from greener operations.
Unlike seaport equipment (i.e. cargo-handling equipment, yard trucks, etc.), which are already qualified for the California Air Resources Board’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) program and the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality’s Clean Fuels Program (CFP), airports operate differently and require extra steps to qualify for the clean fuel programs. At e-Mission Control, we work with airports and their tenant airlines on the engineering analysis required to determine necessary energy equivalences between diesel and electricity. e-Mission Control helps airlines with electric GSE start earning revenue through LCFS and CFP by establishing an energy economy ratio (EER) which is necessary to receive incentives.
Airport Fleets of Electric GSE can Include:
- Container Loaders
- Pushback Tractors
- Lavatory Trucks
- Potable Water Trucks
- Belt Loaders
- Luggage Tugs
