    Ports as Energy Transition Hubs


    Ports are transforming rapidly, with many transforming into vibrant physical and digital hubs of economic activity.

Ports are looking at waste and energy reuse, replacing hydrocarbons with renewable sources to power newly-electrified terminal operations for cargo and passengers. How can public and private sector interests in port communities achieve such a successful energy transition ?
