Develop a technology and/or process that allows ports to maximize the role that they can play in electricity supply and demand management to the benefit of electricity grids.
Ports in Canada will play an important role in the pursuit of net zero. Through the use and provision of electrification and/or clean fuels, their infrastructure will be key in decarbonizing marine transportation and industry and economic activity that relies on marine transportation. Some ports will become hubs for the export of hydrogen or other clean fuels. With ports prospectively featuring substantive energy storage infrastructure, it is possible for them to play an important role in helping to levelize and manage grid electricity demand.
