In episode 7, our panel members Chris Poyner from ABB, Hafsa Shafiq from PTR, and Jan Keenan from Eneco explore the multifaceted aspects of port electrification. The industry experts delve into the concept of “port as energy hubs,” elucidating how these ports can transform into dynamic hubs and can actively contribute to lower carbon emissions through the electrification of port equipment such as shore-to-ship power and vessel charging systems. Because of rising energy needs, other associated technologies are also discussed in the podcast such as hydrogen and energy storage. Furthermore, the roles of utilities, grid operators, energy producers, vessels, and terminal operators are examined for the successful implementation of sustainable energy projects. Join us with the moderator Claire Biau from EOPSA (European Onshore Power Supply Association), our channel partner on this enlightening journey as we uncover the path toward a greener, more sustainable future for ports.
Episode 1 discusses the aims, logistics, and ongoing developments of the European Green Deal and Biden’s Climate Action Plan as well as their impact on the Power Grids of their respective economies.
Episode 2 invites Maciej Mazur, VP of the European Association for Electromobility and CEO of the Polish Alternative Fuels Association, to discuss global EV and EVSE policies, market sustainability, supply chain bottlenecks, grid adoption challenges, and the impact of current world events.
Episode 3 invites Peter Wells, CEO of Smart Wires bringing over three decades of global leadership experience in renewable energy products and services and manufacturing, and Saqib Saeed, the Chief Research Officer (CRO) at Power Technology Research heading the firm’s research operations, to discuss extensively the role of power grid technologies in the energy transition.
Episode 4 starts with the role of port electrification in maritime decarbonization. Ralf Nielsen – Sales Manager at Power Con, and Mustafa Mirza – Port Electrification Analyst at Power Technology Research discuss shore power’s role in port electrification, the incentives and key drivers involved the propagation of the technology. The discussion then shifts towards the challenges faced by the shore power industry in Europe, possible OPS price decrease and finally ends with the ways to resolve these issues. Moderated by Saqib Saeed, Chief Research Officer at Power Technology Research.
Episode 5 invites Anastasia Popova and Pavlina Spasovska from Minespider; a platform that provides tools for the future of sustainable EVs, along with Fatimah Zahid, a Senior Analyst from PTR as a topic expert on E-Mobility to discuss EV batteries in the current global EV market. Along with how the market is affected by the evolving demand and regulations revolving around it.
The submarine cable market is a vital component of global infrastructure, enabling critical data and power transmission between continents. Throughout this episode, our speakers Marc Jeroense (owner and expert at MJ MarCable Consulting AB) and Asad Tariq (analyst at PTR Inc.) explore this dynamic industry’s current state and future prospects, covering everything from demand drivers to supply-side challenges and new technology innovations. As the industry continues to evolve and new demand centers emerge, we look forward to further exploring the fascinating world of submarine cables and their crucial role in connecting people and powering economies around the world.
