Summary:

BDB Pitmans are hosting a webinar on ‘Decarbonising Ports: The Route to Net Zero’ which takes place at 09:30am on Thursday 29th April.

Climate change is arguably the most pressing global issue of our time, and it is finally being taken seriously by governments around the world. The UK is now legally committed to reach ‘Net Zero’ by 2050 and the ports sector will have to play a significant role in reaching that target.

BDB Pitmans, along with an expert panel of speakers will explore some of the challenges and opportunities faced by ports and port users in implementing the measures needed to decarbonise by 2050.

Key themes that will be discussed will include:

  • Electrification of port related activities;
  • Shoreside power;
  • Fuel switch for maritime transport & electric / hybrid / hydrogen vessels;
  • Energy generation and use (PV, wind turbines, LEDs); and
  • Carbon capture & storage.

The panel will include: Leanna Lakes from Red Funnel, Caroline Price from Royal Haskoning DHV, Mark Simmonds from British Ports Association (BPA), Jerry Clarke from Portsmouth Port, Andy Vickers from Vattenfall Network Solutions with Richard Marsh, Partner at BDB Pitmans chairing the session.
