Because of their different scale and activities, small ports require alternative solutions for the transition towards cleaner shipping. Nevertheless, such solutions have the potential for a major impact at a global level.

This is illustrated by a practical example of the development and implementation of an energy pontoon combining renewable energy production with storage and provision of freshwater.
