IAPH commissions study of energy-related port investments

IAPH has commissioned a study to investigate energy-related port investments in developing countries. Ahead of the next Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC 82) at the IMO, the association expects exploratory discussions to take place at the Intersessional Working Group on Greenhouse Gas Emissions on the topic of a market-based measure. As a contribution to this process, IAPH has commissioned a study that will look at identifying potential energy-related investments that will be required in port infrastructure of developing countries to reflect the updated 2023 IMO Strategy on Reduction of GHG Emissions from Ships. The study will include selected countries from Africa, South America, the Indian Subcontinent, Asia and the Pacific Islands Region, and will entail establishing and quantifying the kind of infrastructure that will be required to ensure their inclusion in the energy transition of shipping.
