Siemens and California's south coast air quality management district (SCAQMD) are conducting a 1.6 km, zero-emission e-highway demonstration in Carson, near the US ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.
This catenary system supplies the trucks with electric power and also allows HGVs to operate beyond the electrified sections of infrastructure. Heavy-duty trucks are the number one source of smog-forming emissions in southern California. (ben)
