The Department undertook an assessment in early 2019 of the options to reduce emissions from shipping, including the use of shore-side power during the development of the Clean Maritime Plan.

This assessment considered both opportunities for shore-side power and the implications for the UK Energy System. This research has been published on Gov.UK.
