Ports will only become part of the maritime energy transition if they can attract the public-private investments needed to create the infrastructure for zero carbon fuels, half of which will need to be transported by ship from the new exporting countries to consumers. Future port energy hubs cannot afford to lose the competition to other land-based centers for producing and disturbing these new energies, otherwise shipping itself will lose access to these fuels. This session explores the role of ports as clean energy marine hubs.
