The ports industry is one of the economic pillars of the European community as most imported and exported goods pass through ports. On average, 74% of goods imported and exported go through seaports. However, ports are responsible for a significant rise of environmental impacts, for example through carbon emissions, soil, and water pollution as well as loss of biodiversity.

SEANERGY will create a Clean Energy Hub Master Plan that aims to solve this challenge. This Master Plan will present goals, objectives, training modules, and directions for short-, medium- and long-term operations that will allow port stakeholders to assess, plan and execute activities to transform ports into clean energy hubs.

The aim of the workshop is to present the first results of the project and specifically the overall methodology that will lead to the realisation in 2024 of the Clean Energy Hub Master Plan. It will include specific tools that the ports can use in their decarbonisation and energy transition process. After the presentation of the project and its first results, the workshop aims at interaction with regional Danube stakeholders to:

  • Identify what information, skills and resources are lacking at industry and government level to have the tools necessary to successfully transition to green ports;
  • Understanding the stakeholder perspective to assess the gaps organizations need to fill to be an active member of the transition;
  • Obtain direct feedback from stakeholders on the implementation of technologies already identified in the project.

The SEANERGY Project joined the Danube Ports Days 2023

On November 23rd and 24th 2023, the SEANERGY Project was presented at the Danube Ports Days in Vienna. The Danube Ports Days have become a must-attend event on the agenda of the IWT community in the Danube Region and well beyond, providing a transnational platform to discuss, by bringing together decision-makers, experts and the IWT sector, key aspects related to port development issues.
