The project SUPAIR has just released 2 Action Plans focusing on the future of the ports of Bar (Montenegro) and Durres (Albania) in terms of environmental sustainability and green mobility.
The Port of Bar has recognized the signs of the times early and started its “green port transformation”. The overall goal is to ensure an energy efficient and largely emission-free port operation to reduce costs, improve the port´s overall efficiency and increase its environmental performance. One essential part of the port´s overall “energy sustainability strategy” is the Action Plan for sustainable and low-carbon Port of Bar at hand that provides detailed and concrete information on how to reduce environmental impacts of port operation in a cost-efficient manner.
On the other hand, the Action Plan for a Sustainable and Low Carbon Port of Durres presents different measures, actions and strategies that the Port plans to implement to ensure economic prosperity and long-term improvement of the quality of life in the port area and the urban community it serves. After describing the current situation, the document points out the actions to be carried out in the next years to: improve the environment, the surrounding areas and the green mobility and reduce the port energy consumption.
