ENERGY NETWORK FORMED TO REDUCE SHIPPING EMISSIONS

Feb 5, 2024 | Maritime business news

Ship operators, ports and cargo owners globally are now able to call upon a new business network, NatPower and its clean Energy-as-a-Service model in order to help reach net-zero carbon emissions.

NatPower is an independent clean energy enabler with a mission to cut emissions across the global maritime sector. The aim is to remove a critical bottleneck – the need for clean energy infrastructure onshore, at anchorage and offshore. NatPower Marine is led by CEO and MD Stefano D M Sommadossi and Chairman Fabrizio Zago, both with more than 25 years of experience in renewable energy in five continents.

NatPower Marine is set to deliver a clean Energy-as-a-Service, facilitating onshore and offshore electrification, including anchorage. This will be accomplished through a network of clean energy infrastructure strategically positioned in global locations. NatPower has established hydrogen filling stations (crafted by Zaha Hadid), located in commercial ports, catering specifically to service vessels. Additionally, it has launched NatPower H for the recreational sector, backed by a €100m investment across multiple locations in the Mediterranean Sea.

NatPower Marine says its solutions are rooted in collaboration and understanding of the requirements of ship operators, ports and cargo owners.

NatPower says it has brought together a high level-team of experts in maritime and renewable energy innovation.

Sommadossi said: “We are a well-capitalised global energy provider and developer, with presence in North and South America, UK, Europe and Asia, determined to accelerate the transition to net zero in maritime, one of the most challenging-to-address sectors, with a need of 4.0PWh of electricity by 2025, the amount consumed by the US in a year. Acting as a long-term partner, we will use our data-led insights to understand the needs of our customers and provide them with integrated services and end-to-end infrastructure.”
