AAPA Anywhere: Energy & Environment Seminar & Expo

AAPA Anywhere: Energy & Environment Seminar & Expo

AAPA Anywhere: Energy & Environment Seminar & Expo will explore the opportunities surrounding both energy products as a port cargo and alternative fuels as a means to improve environmental performance. Ports throughout the Hemisphere are charting new courses regarding energy and are blazing trails as environmental leaders in their communities. Other topics may include energy planning, LNG, resiliency, climate planning and sea level rise, and MTMT environmental compliance. This virtual event will also feature separate tracks for those who plan, monitor and administer energy and environment activities, and for those responsible for marketing and communicating information about energy and environment activities.

AAPA Anywhere: Energy & Environment Seminar & Expo will deliver timely, relevant content from experts, exclusive networking and interaction with colleagues and educational opportunities from industry solution providers. From October 26-30, registered participants will be able to access pre-recorded content, participate in live Q&A sessions with presenters, exchange private messages with colleagues through an event app and meet with exhibitors in virtual, informal small groups. 
The event will offer companies heightened visibility through sponsorship opportunities and give exhibitors the opportunity to connect with potential customers.

Many ports operate in regions that fail to meet federal health-based air quality standards. Many also operate near communities that face significant air quality challenges. Consequently, port authorities and marine terminal operators have engaged in efforts to reduce emissions from freight transportation activities. Implementing best practices and communicating with port stakeholders the success of those efforts, will drive innovation, build partnerships, enhance community relations, and ultimately improve the economic and environmental performance of port authorities and marine terminal operators.

Among the top priorities of Western Hemisphere ports is protecting the habitat and water quality of the oceans, rivers, creeks and wetlands surrounding their properties from the potentially damaging effects of erosion and contaminant-laden stormwater runoff, which may include metals, oil residues and nutrients from port operations. Seaports strive to be good neighbors by employing and communicating about activities, initiatives and innovative tools designed to avoid, reduce and/or mitigate any impacts from their operations.

Ports face unique challenges for long-term resilience planning due to both market forces as well as exposure to hazards both natural and man-made.  Responding to these challenges remains difficult, with issues related to  electric grid sustainability ,the ability to access energy in times of an emergency (terrorist, man-made or natural disasters), the ability of port infrastructure to withstand these events, and more. In preparing for and reducing damage from these hazards, the challenges for ports include problems with communication, personnel, and coordination with local, state, and federal stakeholders. While ports are taking steps to become more resilient, challenges still exist for ports and the maritime industry

While ports are the cornerstone of international trade and commerce, they are also increasingly at risk of climate change threats such as rising sea levels, intense storms (including high winds, drenching rain and wave surges from hurricanes), and higher temperatures.  Adapting to water level is constrained both by a lack of appropriate or endorsed engineering standards for maritime infrastructure and in the rate of sea level rise, which may require replacing or updating port infrastructure.  Damage to infrastructure from erosion and storm surge inundation is costly to replace and maintain, particularly where existing coastal defense structures are outdated or in poor repair. More and longer delays to shipping caused by more frequent and larger storm events may also gradually have an impact on the reliability of marine shipping.  

On-Demand Session Topic:

Bob Willard, Chief Sustainability Champion and Founder, Sustainability Advantage

While fossil fuels continue to be the foundation of most energy-dependent nations, businesses worldwide are also investing in virtually every alternative technology.... from wind, water, geothermal and solar power to lithium batteries and even fuels made from algae. Transportation of these myriad energy commodities, as well development of landside assets for production and storage, will continue to provide new and exciting economic development opportunities for ports. In this session, we’ll look at marine terminal development and operations relating to handling different energy commodities, with a particular focus on the policy, permitting and funding challenges. Presenters will also identify community perceptions and misperceptions about handling various energy commodities at ports, and discuss opportunities for cargo growth, taxable investment and/or job creation.
