Please note that this event has been postponed. We will continue updating this post as more information will become available.
The Danish Maritime Authority, the CBSS Secretariat and the Danish Ministry of Environment have been following the Covid-19 situation closely. After careful consideration and in line with the official guidelines, we have decided to postpone the conference “Electrifying Potential: Shore-side Power Generation in Ports”.
The organizers are looking at dates in early autumn. However, no decision on the date will be made before we know that we are in the clear and things have settled down.
Shore-side power has the potential to effectively cut emissions by allowing ships to turn their engines off when at shore and plug into shore-side power facilities instead. While the EU requires all ports implement the technology by 2025, concerns remain over costs, return on investment and practical matters of such implementation.
