Decarbonising Ports & Harbours

The Decarbonising Ports & Harbours Innovation Network’s overarching objective is to raise the profile of the critical part ports and harbours need to play in Maritime transport’s transition to net zero by 2050 and accelerate this transition by giving clear direction.

Join the Decarbonising Ports & Harbours Innovation Network here

This Innovation Network will focus on major ports and harbours that have a cross section of usage including cargo, ferries, and containers, thus addressing a broad range of energy issues.

The Decarbonising of Ports & Harbours Innovation Network aims to convene a community that addresses the challenges of decarbonising, reducing emissions of greenhouse gases and improving localised air quality. The desired end-result of the Innovation Network’s activity is a sector-led proposal for a government-industry partnership and stimulus package. This will include:

  1. Agreed priority cross-sector challenges, informed by the current policy and solutions landscape.
  2. A road-map for solution development, that offer the best overall lifecycle emission reductions, to provide focus and early planning for longer term R&D and innovation investment.
  3. Agreed industry and government commitments and priority actions, including investment plan and timescales.

Our current climate crisis, created through the burning of fossil fuels, will have a significant impact on our health, livelihoods and environment if specific measures aren’t taken to curb its effects. This is a wide and varied effort which involves collaboration across sectors and industries, public and private. The Decarbonising Ports & Harbours Innovation Network is addressing the commitments of the Net Zero by 2050, Clean Maritime Plan and the Maritime 2050 Strategy by catalysing cross sector activity.
