Energy Systems


Work description

1) Identification of current and future energy uses and energy carriers in ports. 2) Development of energy optimization models that can be applied at the scale of a port, and that allow decision making in terms of planning of new port infrastructures that allow, for example, local production of electricity and renewable heat, support for local charging of batteries to support electric vehicles and support structures loading/unloading, introduction of hydrogen, installation of OPS to connect vessels in loading/unloading maneuvers, support for decarbonization of road, rail, maritime and inland waterway transport with origin/destination in the port. 3) Contribution to the project deliverables. 4) Dissemination of the work in international journals and/or conferences.
