On November 10th, 2022, World Maritime University hosted our first SEANERGY Project workshop in collaboration with ENGIMMONIA Project on EU #ports and #alternativefuels.

In conclusion, many challenges lie ahead:

  • No clear single transitional and/or long-term standard yet (LNG, ammonia, methanol, hydrogen etc.)
  • Need for sufficient capacity of renewable energy for green fuel production
  • Massive long-term investment needs
  • Ensuring long-term physical port space, capacities and planning horizons for green fuels and fuel infrastructure
  • Grid capacity and competing prioritization for shore power and electrification
  • Regulations need to be technology-neutral and promote the desired outcome of emissions reduction rather than specific technologies.
  • All actors, shipping lines/ship owners, regulators, cities, ports etc., need to be on board…

Why is the identification of relevant stakeholders key to transforming ports into clean energy hubs?

The stakeholders’ management emerged as a field of study and practice owing to the industry's need to plan, control, and manage huge, complicated series of operations.

Seanergy Project Has Officially Kicked Off

The Sustainability EducationAl programme for greeNER fuels and enerGY on ports (SEANERGY) is an initiative financed by the European Union, within the framework of the research and innovation programme Horizon Europe.
