Onshore electricity at Ports of Genoa
Thanks to an EU CEF Transport-funded project, Ports of Genoa can now provide onshore electricity. The Port is located very close to urban areas and will see a reduction in air pollutants and noise as a result of this. The project is included in a Global Project aiming to improve the environmental performance of the port through two elements: the provision of shore-side electricity and an ex post climate change impact assessment. In the long run, the project will support good port-city relationships and sustainable growth for the port. The project began in July 2015 and was completed in December 2021. Almost 2,5 million were funded by the EU.
