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 building and manufacturing the advanced solutions for transforming today’s ships stopovers in ports to be greener, competitive and strategic.
A truly sustainable future will be based on safe, efficient and innovative technologies and structures.
ADVOCACY NETWORKING INFORMING

EOPSA communicates, shares best practices and ensures close collaboration and coordination between all its members and key stakeholders.
By bringing together an ecosystem around energy companies, port authorities and maritime operators, EOPSA will represent their interest in the EU, cooperate with the authorities such as the International Maritime Office and ensure best value for its members.
What an amazing journey it has been so far and yet there is still so much to do.
