Alabama Port Authority Competing for EPA Grant

The Alabama Port Authority recently announced its application for a federal grant to launch a major emissions reduction effort at Port facilities. The Port Operations With Emissions Reduction Project, or POWER Project, would be funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Clean Ports initiative. The Alabama Port Authority is applying for $69M of funding to deploy new technologies, all of which will add to the growing number of electric and clean fuel vehicles already in use at the Port.

“As the Port grows and supports Alabama’s economy, we want to ensure that we’re being good neighbors and good stewards of our environment. We believe that, if the EPA approves this grant application, this funding can be put to use right away toward a variety of emissions reduction programs that will modernize Port operations and further strengthen our environmental commitment,” said Alabama Port Authority Director and CEO John Driscoll. “We appreciate the support of so many community partners and business leaders as we seek the funding needed for these projects.”
