Landstrømkonference – Søfartsstyrelsen inviterer til 3. december til en onlinekonference om grønnere skibsfart og krydstogtsindustri i Østersøen!
3. december kl. 8:30 - 12:00
About the conference
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.
The main aim of the conference is to provide port authorities and those within the sector with the know-how and practical examples of shore-side power generation to facilitate the transition to a greener shipping and cruise industry in the Baltic Sea Region. The conference will highlight the benefits of investing in port infrastructure and will examine the added value to ports and ship owners of such investment. Impacts and benefits of developing greener port infrastructures to regional branding will also be considered. The conference will address the issue of securing funding for investments in such developments and the final session will be dedicated to exploring ways to further promote sustainable blue growth in the light of the European Green Deal.
