[GloMEEP] Study of Emission Control and Energy Efficiency Measures for Ships in the Port Area

The primary objective of this study is to support IMO’s goal of encouraging and guiding local and nationallevel discussions on how to improve the sustainability of the maritime transportation system at the ship-port interface. This study identifies measures and best practices that stakeholders can consider to reduce air emissions and improve overall efficiency in the port area. Both existing and emerging control measures are analysed for their potential to reduce emissions and/or improve efficiency.To this end, the study consists of three major tasks: Identify existing and effective control measures and instruments (technological, operational and market-based) to reduce emissions at the ship-port interface, as well as abatement potential and abatement costs for control measure as available; Identify barriers (technological, operational and commercial) to the uptake of measures to reduce emissions when ships are in port and provide recommendations to address these barriers; and Identify and evaluate possible innovative measures and instruments, including incentive schemes and best practices, which could be further developed for reducing emissions and optimizing operational efficiencies of ships when in port (Published in 2015).
