Energy and Environment Seminar

Energy and Environment Seminar
The Energy & Environment seminar will encompass a broad range of environmental issues and energy policy discussions of vital concern to port managers and other senior port executives. The program will focus on both energy as a commodity/business line and a power source/cost-savings opportunity for ports. Topics may include energy planning, LNG, resiliency, climate planning and sea level rise, sustainability reports and metrics, community engagement, transportation issues and environmental compliance.

Time
9:00 AM - 9:45 AM
9:00 AM
Many ports have implemented voluntary programs to reduce emissions from oceangoing vessels, including slow steaming incentives and adoption of the Environmental Ship Index.
Time
9:45 AM - 10:45 AM
9:45 AM
Electrification of vehicles from trucks to cargo handling equipment is becoming a reality, as ports seek to demonstrate the viability of electrification and other zero emissions technology in and around marine terminals.
Time

11:00 AM
Mayors Initiative
Time
1:15 PM - 2:45 PM
1:15 PM
Ports have undertaken a variety of projects and programs to reduce marine debris, including innovative uses of technology to address debris found in waterways and preventing trash from reaching bays, harbors and rivers.
Time
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
3:00 PM
While contaminated properties can provide opportunities for port development, they pose challenges for clean up. Engaging communities on clean up efforts can help facilitate the remediation of these sites.

9:00 AM
Streamlining Federal Regulations for U.S. Ports:   U.S. port projects require the input and approval of a wide variety of federal agencies before they can advance.

Time
10:15 AM - 11:15 AM
10:15 AM
Operations at Ports: As ports move to power more and more of their cargo handling equipment through grid-sourced electricity, they are also taking steps to ensure that weather events and other disruptions do not impede their ability to move cargo through marine terminals.
Time
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
11:30 AM
The vessel industry is adopting the use of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and other lower emission fuels in its operations, creating opportunities for ports to service this growing industry and stake out leadership positions related to LNG.
Time
1:30 PM - 2:45 PM
1:30 PM
Infrastructure Resiliency: Ports have been undertaking wetland and habitat creation projects for many decades, but in recent years, they are more likely to marry these projects with efforts to create coastlines that resist or slow down erosion or prevent flooding.
Time
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
3:00 PM
U.S. ocean planning efforts continue to advance, especially in the northeast, as a method for reconciling competing uses of the ocean and ensuring that economic uses are balanced with environmental and security priorities
Time
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
