In this episode of More Power To You we explore the nexus of electrification, transportation and industrial marine ports. My guest is Christine Houston, Manager of Sustainable Practices at the Port of Long Beach, the 2nd largest port in the country and a national leader in electrification.

In our conversation we touch on a range of issues including why the Port is pursuing electrification in the first place, what’s involved in electrifying a massive marine port, the implications of electrification for managing load, and what port electrification and automation mean for jobs and workforce development.
