Title: Paving the Way to a Smarter, Stronger, Greener Port Grid
Growing global trade and passenger traffic are leading to an increase in the size of vessels as well as the number of port calls, thus requiring ports infrastructure modernization.
Shore-to-ship power and port electrification promote ports in their role as vital regional economic engines – in a traditional way, as transit hubs for people and goods, and in a modern way, as sustainable business entities wholly integrated with the surrounding community. Clean energy provision and elimination of diesel emissions and noise will improve the working, transit and living environment in and around ports. Electrification is the only cost-effective way to reduce on-site emissions by almost 100 percent and ensure long-term port growth.
