Creating a blueprint for the decarbonisation of UK ports



Ian Blake, Head of Innovation and Technology, Port of Tyne 2050 Maritime Information Hub


In March 2021 Innovate UK put out a call for applications for its Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition, which provides R&D funding for technology that could help accelerate the decarbonisation of the maritime industry.

Here in the North East, a consortium called the Clean Tyne project answered the call and, just six months since we received funding, our new digital platform is in operation at the Port of Tyne, providing real-time data on the port’s energy use and giving future modelling which will help us reduce carbon emissions.
