Common challenge

One of the major challenges for the 2 Seas area is to achieve carbon reductions through introduction of low carbon technologies (incl. renewables and energy efficiency). This project is addressing this challenge; in particular the application of such technologies in maritime operations within small and medium sized (SMS-)ports. These ports face numerous common obstacles (f.e. limited resources, technical expertise, lack of collaboration, regulations) and as a result little has been done to reduce carbon emissions. Demonstrations of low carbon technologies and solutions in real life and different circumstances are required to raise awareness and to show feasibility. In addition to convince other SMS-ports it is also necessary to develop and showcase practical methods and tools as energy audit, potentials for renewables and the best mix of low carbon options. Finally SMS-ports needs practical models for low carbon investment & business cases and to come to energy cooperation structures.
