|Zero Emission Shipping Project|
|Name:||Port Readiness Level (PRL) Framework|
|Project Status:||In Progress|
|Point of Contact:||Joshua Messner (US DOE)|
This project will refine the previously developed International Association of Ports and Harbors’ (IAPH) PRL Framework. Over the next 6 months, a tool will be beta tested and developed into an online tool.
The main outcome of this project will be a web-based tool to aid in the self-assessment, by ports and port authorities, of a port’s current and future ability to supply or support the use of alternative fuels.
Conversations with International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) and the World Ports Climate Action Program (WPCAP) regarding the implementation of the IAPH / WPCAP developed Port Readiness Level Tool have evolved into full partnership in which the Fuels Pillar will provide the resources and funding necessary for beta testing and website development of the tool in the next 6 months.
