BTJ 6/15 - Report: Onshore power supply and offshore wind energy

Ports are the most visible interfaces and direct links between the neighbouring population and the maritime industry. 

The increasing pressure from coastal communities to reduce environmental and health impacts associated with the shipping business places harbours on the front line of social responsibility and action taking.

Luckily, there are solutions available from stock for port authorities and ship operators not only to meet their closest neighbours’ expectations, but also to aid the environment globally.

Ports and ships plugged into sustainability, by Silvia Caballero, Regional Business Development Director for Shore Connection Solutions at Schneider Electric

 

The 6/2015 issue of Baltic Transport Journal in the Report section features also:

  • Smart specialisation. Pomeranian offshore and marine technologies, by Leszek Wilczyński, Research and Development Director at the Ship Design and Research Centre

Since Europe's prosperity is based on innovation-driven growth across its regions, each of them makes efforts to identify the most promising local technologies to foster their competitive position, both Europe-wide and globally. The so-called Smart Specialisation serves as the key element of such a strategy. Back in 2014, Poland's Pomeranian Voivodeship introduced an ongoing bottom-up approach to identify the most promising fields of development in this regard.

  • Development in the wind. Wind power in the Baltic Sea region, by Iza Kielichowska, Vice-President of the Board, and Oliwia Mróz, Offhore and International Cooperation Specialist, Polish Wind Energy Association

The offshore wind energy (OWE) market in Europe has been subject to dynamic development for anumber of years. The European Commission forecasts that OWE-installed capacity in 2020 will reach 43 GW, feeding around 3% of the EU's total electricity consumption, and creating a market worth some EUR 130 bln annually. By 2030, the capacity could rise to 150 GW, taking the Community closer to its hawkish goals of cutting down greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by 2030.
