This presentation discusses a case study of the TVA Non-Road Transportation Electrification Project designed and implemented by Lockheed Martin Energy. This program developed a methodology to pay incentives on local emissions reduction ($/ton of CO2e) in order to support adoption of electrified, non-road transportation assets.
Technologies: electric forklifts, airport ground support equipment, heavy-duty truck stop electrification, and electric truck refrigeration units. In addition to reduced emissions, benefits included increased revenue for electric utilities, environmental benefits, and improved C&I customer operations. Results: Over 650 fossil-fueled nonroad vehicles were converted to electric powered alternatives and 24 electrification stations at truck stops were installed. Net emissions of 209,337 tons of CO2 will be reduced over the lifetime of the new equipment. Local power companies realized net load growth of over 9.4 million kWh and $755,000 annually from the nonroad vehicle conversions to electricity power. The revenue from beneficial electrification will surpass the cost of the incentives in less than five years while providing economic and environmental benefits to utility customers.
