 STATEWIDE DIESEL
    ENGINE IDLE
REDUCTION STANDARD
             August 23, 2007

  Department of Environmental Protection
   Division of Air Resource Management
      Executive Order 07-127
 EstablishingImmediate Actions to
 Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions
 within Florida

     DEP to develop rules to achieve………

      • Adoption of a statewide diesel engine idle
        reduction standard.
           Impacts of Idling
 Wastes   fuel
    • Burns 1 gallon per hour while alternatives like
      auxiliary power units consume 10% to 20%


          emissions of greenhouse
 Increased
 gases and other pollutants
Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Impacts
   Department of Energy
       Based on nationwide numbers (500,000 long haul
        trucks in review data)
         • 1 billion gallons for overnight idling
         • 2 billion gallons for workday idling
   EPA Estimates
       Emissions from overnight idling alone total 7.6 million
        tons of CO2
   California Estimates
       In 2010, sleeper trucks idling emissions are
        estimated at 1 million tons of GHG emissions
        per year.
      Executive Order Allows
 Broad    Range of Options
     Passenger cars and light trucks
     Commercial buses
     Heavy trucks
     Locomotives
     Ships at Port
    Common State Idle Reduction
         Requirements
   Target vehicles producing greatest amount
    of emissions
       Commercial heavy duty vehicles typically over
        10,000 lbs
         • Delivery vehicles
         • Buses
         • Tractor Trailer

   Idle time 5 minutes
       Idle time is consistent with EPA’s Model State
        Idling Law
   Provide Exemptions
 Common Idling Exemptions for
    Heavy-Duty Vehicles
 Certain buses
 Tractors with sleeper berths in use
 Vehicle queuing
 Weather or mechanical/safety problems
 Maintenance
 Power takeoff operations
 Emergency or Military operations
 ADA requirements
       California: Most Stringent
             Requirements
      state to restrict idling in sleeper
 First
 berth trucks
     14,000 lbs and over
     Provisions go into effect January 2008
     Subject to the 5 minute idle limit
 New trucks sold in California required
 to include automatic engine shut down
 feature
         Emerging Areas of Idling
                Concern
   Locomotives
       Switchyards
       Worker breaks
       Crew changes
   Ports
       Vessels
       Cargo handling equipment
       Trucks and vehicles
       Harbor Vessels
       Rail
    Idle Reduction Options
 Operational   practices

 Technology    and Infrastructure
     Operational Changes
 Turn   engine off after a set time

 Scheduling and logistics improvements
 to reduce idle times
Technology Options Identified By
 Other Idle Reduction Programs
 Aux power units (APU).
 Truck stop electrification
       Onboard power systems
       Off board power systems
 Integrated power systems in new vehicles
  (battery systems)
 Fuel fired heaters
 Thermal energy storage systems
 Automatic engine shutdown system
      Locomotive & Shipping Port
            Technology
 Locomotives
     Hybrid electric switchyard engines
     Automatic engine shut down system

 Shipping    Ports
     Shore power infrastructure
     New technologies (e.g., electric cranes,
      battery-electric vehicles)
                Conclusions
   Heavy Duty Diesel Vehicles (HDDV)
       Primary focus of most state idle reduction
        strategies
   Locomotives
       Not as many regulatory examples
       More uncertain technology
       High potential for improvement
   Shipping Ports
       Most programs in developing phase
       Complex to regulate
                  Comments
   Scope of regulation
       Identification of diesel engines suitable for
        inclusion
       Identification of exemptions
   Infrastructure needs
   Costs
       Technology
       Implementation
   Emissions data
   Avoid negative impacts on overall
    air quality
