Green EFFORTS, stands for Green and Effective Operations at Terminals and in Ports, is a collaborative research project, co-funded by the European Commissions under the Seventh Framework Programme with a total budget of € 2 million, aiming at reduction of emissions by decreasing of energyconsumption and improving use of a cleaner energy mix in terminals and ports.
The green EFFORTS project, started 1st January 2012 to be concluded 30th June 2014, coordinates by the Maritime Logistics Workgroup at Jacobs University Bremen. Eight partners are involved collaboratively in the project - Port of Trelleborg (RoRo Terminal), Sächsische Binnenhafen Oberelbe (Inland Waterway Terminal), Siemens, IHS Global Insight, Hamburg Port Training Institute, Fraunhofer Centre for Maritime Logistics and Services, Erasmus University Rotterdam and Jacobs University Bremen.
It is also of utmost importance to increase the awareness of energy consumption and its environmental and economic effects and to increase motivation to use energy more knowledgeable and responsibly, therefore the green EFFORTS project will develop an implementation strategy supported by training and incentives programs.
