About this event

As the UK government throws its backing behind the R&D of shore power as a solution to ports’ emissions, this panel discussion will look at the technology’s potential impact, challenges and how it will be measured, ultimately asking the following question – is shore power a ‘red herring’ and should we be waiting for the full solution….carbon-free fuel?

This is a HYBRID event:

  • In-person incl. drinks reception: at the British Ports Association, 30 Park St, London SE1 9EQ
  • Virtual: Livestreamed to the ABL Group Youtube Channel

The panel will discuss the following questions:

  1. What’s shore power or cold ironing all about and how impactful could it be?
  2. Is it key to delivering on the Clydebank Declaration?
  3. Challenges around delivering shore power solutions and measuring its success?
  4. Will shore power go far enough to decarbonise maritime and what are its short falls?

Our panel:

  • Paul Martin, Maritime Director, ABL Group
  • Daniele Caruso, Principle Project Manager Cables, OWC
  • Bob Sanguinetti, CEO Aberdeen Harbour
  • Tom Willis, Chief Executive Shoreham Port
  • RV Ahilan, Chief Energy Transition Officer ABL Group (Chair)

The discussion will conclude with a short introduction to emiTr – a digital solution to track and calculate port direct and indirect emissions, facilitating future decarbonisation initiatives. Developed by ABL Group in collaboration with Shoreham Port.
