Maritime bulletin Energy consumption container terminals

29 July 2015|Briefing note

This document synthesizes the most pertinent findings of a survey of over 41 container terminals around the world of which 30 are located in Latin America and the Caribbean and represent 1/3 of the regional annual container throughput in 2014.

The results are part of a global study on energy consumption in terminals and ports of all kinds. Follow ‐ up publications including a larger set of countries as well as with specifications for bulk cargo, liquids and gas are under way. Furthermore, sub ‐ regional and national seminars are envisaged over the course of the year to present the study’s results, to discuss these with the maritime and port industry and to outline further steps to improve energy efficiency in ports and terminals.
