In this study, we analyze the macroeconomic impacts of the electrification of CHE at Port of Los Angeles and Port of Long Beach between 2020 and 2045. We will analyze the aggregate impacts on the California state economy and the implications to the transportation sector. Several sensitivity analyses are performed to examine how the macroeconomic impact results would change in response to changes in key assumptions.
