Ports can play a pivotal role in the world’s decarbonisation challenge as natural hotspots for sector coupling and energy system integration. They will become the frontrunners of the energy transition, if port authorities and industry sectors join forces.
A new report Ports: Green Gateways to Europe – written by DNV GL with input from Eurelectric - provides vital insights that can inspire the power sector and all stakeholders active in and around ports to create strategies and explore their decarbonisation potential.
The report outlines 10 Green Transitions that are key to decarbonising ports, and reveals:
- The electrification and decarbonisation potential in European ports, including a variety of industries and water transport
- How stakeholders can transform and decarbonise ports and co-located industries
- The existing barriers and the measures, including regulatory, economic and technical ones, necessary to unleash this potential
- The policies recommended for accelerating the decarbonisation of ports through electrification
