Ships can cut their pollution in ports by using shore-power, however this is rare in the UK. This report assesses the barriers to implementation of shore-power, and proposes how they can be overcome. The research is based upon interviews with 40 industry stakeholders. It concludes that shore-power has multiple benefits which can be unlocked by Government interventions on capital grants and electricity pricing, and greater collaborative-working between ports, shipping operators and electricity network operators.
