ENEPORTS

Decarbonization and digitization of Atlantic ports

Category International
Sectors Renewable Energies
Execution Period 2023-2026
Funding Interreg Atlantic Area, EAPA_0016/2022

Description

The ports of the Atlantic Area can become digitalized “laboratories” for renewable energy, preparing to supply clean electricity to ships and their concessionaires, and to facilitate connection and testing of prototypes for these energies, leveraging local resources and proximity to the sea. ENEPORTS proposes three demonstrative pilots to examine how digitization and AI can contribute to the efficient management of energy flows; and will study new decarbonization strategies using hydrogen and a device that combines wave, tidal, solar, and wind energy generation. ENEPORTS will address administrative requirements, potential economic, social, and environmental impacts; and technological challenges of operating hybrid systems with different sources and variable energy demands, focusing on their orderly deployment.
