MSE International will be hosting this workshop at Seawork, Southampton,  to discuss the issues surrounding port decarbonisation and present the Port of Portsmouth as a case study for combining renewable generating capacity with innovative energy storage solutions and advanced energy management systems.

Ports and shipping are major users of energy and are under pressure to improve air quality and reduce carbon emissions. To achieve this ports will have to change the way they use energy and the infrastructure that delivers it. This presentation will look at the fast changing landscape of port decarbonisation.

Ports, renewable energy providers, energy service providers and other stakeholders would be welcome to attend this session to learn about the fast changing landscape as well as supply chain opportunities in port decarbonisation.

The event is being held on Thursday 23rd June 2022 at the Seawork Exhibition as part of the Business Briefings in Conference Room 1 at Seawork, Mayflower Park, Southampton SO14 2AN.

The event is free to attend but you must register for free entry to Seawork here.
