EUROPEAN ONSHORE POWER SUPPLY ASSOCIATION
Onshore Power Supply (OPS) is also known as Shore side electricity (SSE),
Shore Connection, Shore-to-ship Power, Cold ironing, Alternative Maritime Power ...
EOPSA, A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
While in port, ships use their Auxiliary Engines (AE) to produce electricity.Shore-side energy (SSE) has the potential to eliminate ships engines emissions in ports and cities, reducing each pollutant by about 90% and greenhouse gas emissions by 50%, as well as reducing noise, vibration and engine wear-and-tear.
EOPSA' members are world experts that render OPS / SSE a reality: From design, innovations, permitting, incentives, EPCI, through to operations and maintenance, EOPSA’ members help deliver the electrification solutions a 21st century decarbonised port & port-city expects.
Decarbonisation through electrification and shore power not only serves upcoming EU legislation, but first and foremost, social, health and economic objectives.
Each elected official is keenly aware of the social cost associated with a port ecosystem pollution and the benefits of collaboration. EOPSA brings together those who can.
I am thrilled to share the progress EOPSA, our Executive Committee, our Founding Members and Members have made over the past year.
Our community has grown significantly, welcoming prestigious new amazing experts and companies who share our vision of a decarbonized port and shipping industry.
We remain steadfast in our commitment to our five key advocacy points and reducing barriers to implementation ...
Promote the widespread adoption of onshore power supply as a sustainable solution to reduce noise, vibration and air pollution resulting from the use of fossil fuel engines in port and port city environments.
Bring together a broad range of international and national experts from global companies, SME, European and national associations, port and public authorities, non-governmental organizations, and other relevant entities serving adoption and systematic installation along European sea, inland and leisure routes.
Advocate for European and national policies and initiatives toward decarbonised port electrification and help bring down regulatory, knowledge and financial barriers.
Promote and help coordinate research, advancement, and innovation of OPS technologies and standards.
Serve as the unified voice of the European onshore power supply industry and promote collaboration toward sustainable prosperity.
Act as the driving force behind the future direction of the onshore power supply sector, shaping its growth and development.
