The Annual Conference of the European Sea Ports Organisation is held this year in Piraeus. It focuses on the relation of ports and energy and looks at the role of ports in a changing European energy policy framework. The ESPO 2015 kicked-off yesterday (May 21) by drawing the most realistic energy scenarios and how these will affect transport, ports and port industries. The conference will further examine the way ports can respond and possibly benefit from the shift to alternative energies in maritime transport and how Europe’s decarbonisation agenda could bring new business to ports and how can ports improve energy efficiency in their daily functioning.

Piraeus is Greece’s largest port and one of Europe’s most important passenger ports.
It connects continental Greece with the islands, and is both an international cruise centre and a commercial hub for the Mediterranean, providing services for ships of all type and size.
