MAGPIE deliverables

Our European consortium involves several different partners, working on a large variety of pilot-projects. Deliverables are the focal points to ensure the consistency of our research and to report our progress to the European Commission. These documents generally consist of a scientific analysis on a specific question, highlighting the tasks which have been carried out, the gaps identified during the execution, and the upcoming actions to undertake. Once the original redactor has completed their preparation, our deliverables follow a process of peer review. They are then submitted to the portal of the Horizon 2020 program, to get formal approval from the European Commission.

Disclaimer: for the sake of transparency, the MAGPIE consortium has published these documents on its website. However, such publication does not mean that this downloadable content has received approval from the European Commission. The European Commission is not responsible for any use that may be made of the information it contains.

Deliverable D1.8 Project management plan and project process handbook

Summary: Deliverable 1.8 is the Project Management Plan Revision 1 (PMP Rev1) of the MAGPIE Project. The purpose of this document is to provide a documented plan for the management and control of the organizational, developmental and supporting processes. This PMP describes the goals, objectives, organisational setup, responsibilities and roles of project participants. Specifies the general procedures and management to ensure the success of the project.

Deliverable D3.1 Transport energy requirements

Summary: Greening transport is a key objective of the European Green Deal. Transport accounts for 25% of the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions. Green transport developments focus on the supply chain and use of green energy carriers. MAGPIE project task 3.1 has been set out to map the current (supplied by fossil fuels) and the future energy demand (supplied by green energy carriers) associated with the different transport modalities that co-exist in a port ecosystem (using the port of Rotterdam as use-case). The main goal is to provide a first indication of the order-magnitude of the demand (present and future) for the transport sector. This will be the starting point for the development of the green energy supply chains in the MAGPIE project. Other aspects, such as analysing the impact of cost and infrastructural constraints are out of scope in task 3.1, but is included in upcoming tasks of Work Package 3.

Deliverable D3.2 Gaps and developments – electricity supply chain

Summary: This deliverable D3.2 focuses on the electricity supply chain and aims to create the foundations for 1)
establishing future energy demand scenarios; 2) assessing how the electricity supply chain (production, storage, distribution) needs to evolve to accommodate these future requirements.

Deliverable D3.4 Gaps and developments – hydrogen supply chain

Summary : This deliverable D3.4 focuses on analysing and modelling a green hydrogen supply chain for port and
hinterland transport demand. Building upon the outputs of D3.11 and T3.2, D3.4 focuses on accessing what changes/upgrades are required at the hydrogen supply chain level so that the future demand for green H2 can be attended. Although the main objective of MAGPIE is to green transports, highlight is also given to industries considering their role as major hydrogen consumers

Deliverable D3.6 Ammonia supply chain

Summary : There is unlikely to be a single low-carbon fuel of the future and ammonia is well-placed to play a significant role. It’s competition faces challenges: biofuels are short of sustainable feedstock, liquified hydrogen is a nascent technology, methanol remains a carbon-based vector and e-methanol is widely forecast to be more expensive than green ammonia. However, ammonia has it’s own challenges to address – notably its toxicity and low-carbon production. Demonstration projects and well-written regulation are key to expanding the proven, yet high-carbon, value chain of today. We will explore this below.

Deliverable D4.1 Digital platforms and services

Summary: Ports will play a major role in boosting the use of cleaner technologies, green energy carriers and logistics concepts in maritime transport, port operations and hinterland transport to reduce Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The objective of Work Package 4 is to develop and to integrate modular, flexible, and interoperable digital tools. Such digital tools will be applied to various infrastructures and assets of ports, allowing for data collection, system modelling, data handling, intelligence, decision support capabilities, and GHG emissions reductions and air quality improvements. More specifically, WP4 aims to identify requirements and existing platforms, systems, and other sources of data; to define a modular architecture; to implement interoperable digital representations of the (non-)physical assets of ports; and implement the components that form the foundation for a Digital Twin (DT) for ports.

Deliverable D4.2 Definition of modular architecture for port digital twin

Summary: This deliverable reports on the work carried out within task 4.2 of WP4. The objective of T4.2 is to develop a target architecture for a data sharing infrastructure that supports the port digital twin concept. The development of the target architecture follows the approach of use case development, abstraction of the functional requirements which leads to the target architecture for the port digital twin.

Deliverable D7.1 Barrier Analysis

Summary: The aim of this report is to gather and structure the barriers related to the implementation of zero-emission solutions. A barrier is defined as a factor ‘limiting the ability to perform the innovation process, due to the absence or lacking capability of one of the stakeholders, institutions, infrastructure or interactions.’ This is done by reviewing academic and industrial literature complemented by port ecosystem stakeholders’ interviewees. The resulting barriers will be used to decide which eight non-tech innovations need to be developed to overcome these barriers as part of the MAGPIE project.
The research scope was limited to a subset of 50 academic and industrial literary sources on barriers in innovation processes in the context of sustainability in ports. Furthermore, the sample size of the interviewees was limited to 28, due to time restraints.

Deliverable D7.3 Selection Of Non-Tech Solutions

Summary: The goal of Work Package 7 (WP7) within the MAGPIE project is to develop and demonstrate non-technological solutions that enable and accelerate the implementation of low or zero-emission technological and logistical solutions in the context of the port. The aim of this report is to present a qualified shortlist of non-technological solutions that will be designed and implemented by partners of WP7.

Deliverable D7.4 Guideline Effective Operationalisation Non-Tech Solutions

Summary: This report aims to devise a guideline for the effective operationalisation of the nontechnological solutions with respect to green innovation in the port sector. Inspiration was gained from research and discussion within the work package partners. The resulting assessment system offers both an approach to evaluating the effectiveness of the nontechnological solutions with respect to green innovation in the port sector, as well as a guideline on how to design and implement these solutions. To this end, the guideline puts forth several steps and questions that should be undertaken at various stages of the design, implementation, and evaluation stages of innovation.

Deliverable D9.1 Building blocks for the categorisation of ports

Summary: Decarbonisation and the energy transition are gaining importance in the port industry. Ports play an important role in reducing energy consumption and emissions, as they are key nodes in energy value chains and consume significant amounts of energy. Increasingly, ports are also involved in renewable power generation and are
becoming active players in the production, storage, and distribution of low and zero carbon fuels. Many energy-transition studies, pilot projects and investments are taking place in ports in the EU and around the world. Among others, MAGPIE is one of the leading European Horizon projects on energy transition in ports.

Deliverable D10.3 Intention joint communication with green air(port) projects

Summary: This deliverable should contain a document expressing the intention to align communication activities and implementation plans with other actions addressing similar topics. The document should have been signed by the MAGPIE Coordinator and the coordinators of the other actions mentioned.
