Robert Courts – 2022 Comments on Shore Power

The comments made by Robert Courts, Maritime Minister, on 7 February 2022.

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges this generation faces, and we will continue to lead international efforts to decarbonise the maritime sector.

Shore power will end the outdated practice of ships keeping their engines running while anchored in port, reducing the poisonous fumes entering the air and ensuring we meet our net zero 2050 goals.
