Port of Seattle and Seattle City Light to study use of hydrogen fuel

November 9, 2021

The Port of Seattle and Seattle City Light will take a deeper look at using hydrogen fuels to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in two studies funded by $2.12 million in Energy Department grants.

The first study will examine setting up a hydrogen fueling station for forklifts, trucks, cranes and other equipment now powered by fossil fuels. The second study will look at the risks and benefits of developing a hydrogen infrastructure at the Port that could provide energy for cruise and cargo ships as well as shore-based vehicles and equipment.

The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories will assist in the studies. The Northwest Seaport Alliance (NWSA) and Paccar are partners in the study, said Fred Felleman, Port of Seattle Commission president and co-chair of the NWSA, in a written statement.
