How about sustainable ports?
The MAGPIE project built a categorisation of ports, based on today’s energy transition efforts and capabilities. These categories assists future work of the MAGPIE Masterplan in developing energy transition pathways for ports. The three main themes identified as critical are: energy transition infrastructure and technologies, seagoing ships and hinterland transport, governance for energy transition. The categorisation was prepared on the basis of a detailed study of 15 sea and inland ports, which are considered pioneers in terms of energy transition and sustainability.
