The People’s Republic of China (PRC), home to 80 percent of the world’s biggest ports, should ramp up the introduction of new energy technologies for its ports and inland waterway shipping as it targets carbon neutrality by 2060, this brief shows.

Summarizing an ADB-backed study, it outlines the benefits of transitioning to new all-electric and liquefied natural gas-powered inland waterway barges. The brief looks at boosting automation and increasing terminal energy efficiency. It recommends ways ADB’s developing member countries can follow suit by introducing multi-energy microgrids for ports, incentivizing clean port operations, and offering financing to spur the adoption of new energy solutions.
