PORTOS – Ports towards energy self-sufficiency

PORTOS aims to assess, develop and promote the integrated use of renewable energy resources in Atlantic Area ports and increase their energy efficiency, establishing a roadmap to a more competitive and sustainable sector. 

The main objective is to develop and promote the implementation of renewable energy, especially marine renewable energies such as wave, tidal and wind energy, at Atlantic Area ports. Moreover, PORTOS aims to address two environmental priorities for ports, reduction of greenhouse gases emissions and air pollution, by providing renewable energy-based solutions to harvest the renewable energy potential of Atlantic Area coastal areas.
