Ports' Technology Advancement Program
The Ports are committed to encouraging the development of cutting-edge emission-reduction technologies. The Ports' Technology Advancement Program, aka TAP, provides funding, guidance, and staff support to test promising air technologies in a real-world port environment.
Our goal is to get successful technologies to the port market as quickly as possible. That’s why we work closely with technology developers, regulatory agencies, and our port industry partners to take these technologies from testing to commercialization and – ultimately – widespread adoption. Unlike other regional and state technology advancement programs, the Ports’ TAP is focused on clean technologies and associated infrastructure specifically for maritime related mobile sources that operate in and around ports.
Interested in submitting a project concept to the TAP? Learn about what's required before you apply. Find test protocols, duty-cycle reports, and other resources.
Do you have a technology that would be a good fit for the TAP? If you are ready to submit a project concept, please follow the Request for Information process found here.
