Application Resources

Are you a technology developer interested in TAP funding?

The Technology Advancement Program funds demonstrations for emission-reduction technologies that have not yet been commercialized for port applications.

Technologies must target any of the Ports’ five source categories, which include ships, innovative truck infrastructure, cargo-handling equipment (including yard tractors), harbor craft and locomotives. The TAP Guidelines provide specific eligibility requirements for each source category. If you are proposing a technology for any of the following below, please review the applicable resource information below:


Have a technology for ships?
Read the testing protocol first.

Have a technology for port terminal equipment?
Read the testing and demonstration guidelines first.

With the increasing development and deployment of zero-emission technologies for cargo handling equipment, including battery-electric yard tractors or rubber-tired gantry cranes, the ports developed a standardization for charging infrastructure required at all of the ports’ terminals. If you’re proposing a battery-electric technology for cargo handling equipment, please read what’s required for TAP demonstrations:
