The International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) plans to collaborate with CEM Global Port Hydrogen Coalition with its World Ports Sustainability Program (WPSP) as the platform to showcase and disseminate hydrogen-related projects in ports.
Further to the first meeting of the Global Ports Hydrogen Coalition this week, IAPH has committed to work with the Hydrogen initiative (H2I) team to gather information and enhance its sustainability project database with all port-related hydrogen projects.
As explained, all eventual CEM Global Ports Coalition Signatories will be able to work directly with IAPH in ensuring enhanced knowledge-sharing around their initiatives as well as enabling bilateral follow-up exchanges and peer reviews.
The data of these global projects will be showcased for public information on the WPSP website project portfolio, and reported data is foreseen to be used in future International Energy Agency (IEA) Global Hydrogen Reviews.
The coalition was launched in June this year as a dedicated working group of the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) Hydrogen Initiative. It is the first global forum that brings representatives from ports together with decision-makers from governments as well as industry with the view to accelerate low-carbon hydrogen deployment. This includes scaling up the production and use of low-carbon hydrogen and hydrogen-based fuels in industrial coastal areas.
