Port energy supply for green shipping corridors

International shipping is a vital industry, facilitating global trade and transporting people around the world. At the same time, it produces greenhouse gas emissions – comparable in scale to industrialised nations such as Germany or Japan – and is a significant source of air pollution. Urgent action is required to reduce emissions in a sustainable manner. The production, supply, and use of alternative fuels – many of which are linked to the hydrogen economy – are essential to this aim.

This study by Arup, Lloyd’s Register (LR) and The Resilience Shift has outlined the critical role of ports in driving and supporting the case for investment in energy infrastructure. It focuses on the integration of fuel demand for early adopters in green corridors, ports, and energy systems.

This report explores the opportunities and challenges associated with developing infrastructure for alternative fuels, through a case study of a green shipping triangle in the Atlantic. We do this by considering this global challenge at an initial project scale, considering how demand for alternative fuels could grow at a port level to realise ambitious climate action. We explore the infrastructure required for low carbon fuel supply, demonstrating the significant scale required even for initial projects, highlighting the need for an integrated approach to their development. We frame how a Total Value approach to these initial projects can unlock significant co-benefits, strengthening their case for investment.

Communities globally depend on resilient, low carbon ports to prosper. Resilience4Ports is a multi-stakeholder, whole-systems approach to enhance the resilience of ports, as a nexus of critical infrastructure systems. With our partners, we are exploring opportunities for resilient, system-wide transformation through the lenses of decarbonisation, technology and port cities. The full report: Resilience4Ports: Gateways to a resilient future can be found on our website.
