BACKGROUND 


Meeting the global climate and sustainability targets demands all sectors of the economy to rapidly embrace the green transitioning of the worldwide energy systems and develop new, innovative business models and collaborations. The maritime sector has now set the ambition for zero-emissions vessels to be a commercial reality by 2030. 

Recent estimates show that almost 90% of the investments needed for the energy transition at sea will be in land-based infrastructure. On the other hand, the energy sector needs to meet the rapidly increasing global demand for security of energy supply and renewable energy by relying on the maritime sector to enable the offshore production and storage and global trade of green electrons and molecules. 

The interconnection of the two sectors is evident in ports, which are expected to develop into energy hubs to bridge the maritime, energy and interrelated industries. This imposes the challenge of how ports can manage and facilitate the transition, which must occur almost simultaneously globally and as efficiently as possible. 

There is a need for large-scale coordinated research that can be enacted as national strategies in an increasing number of countries and regions. In addition, the maritime and energy sectors will demand talent equipped with interdisciplinary skills and the ability to bridge industries and countries at a pace that has never been so demanding. 

The project Ports as Energy Transition Hubs is funded by The Danish Maritime Fund. It is supported by the branch associations Danish Shipping and Danish Ports and is conducted in collaboration with the Maritime Research Alliance. 

It is a collaboration initiated by CBS Maritime, Copenhagen School of Energy Infrastructure (CSEI) and Maritime DTU.
