Port of Dover: Achieving emissions reductions targets through solar energy and building design

06 May 2021

The Port of Dover is working hard to make its existing and new operations sustainable, aiming to reduce its carbon footprint by 5% each year towards a net zero carbon future. The Port has been successful in achieving a 49% carbon reduction since 2007, more than double relevant British and European targets. 4,837 individual photovoltaic panels have been installed on the roof of the new Dover Cargo Terminal West, with an additional 933 panels installed at the former Eastern Docks multi-storey car park to improve energy efficiency and increase the amount of energy obtained from renewable sources.
