Zero emissions berth power provision on the Tidal Thames

Can you help facilitate the Thames' green recovery?

What is the open innovation challenge?

The innovation exchange is seeking innovations that can provide smart flexible zero emission power provision as a service, available 24/7 at the waterside, for berths throughout the port of London adjacent to quaysides and in the river.

The initial focus is on serving the berths owned by the Port of London Authority to serve the cruise ship market who are early adopters of electrical ship to shore solutions.

Successful applicants will be given an opportunity to pitch to the Port of London Authority who will provide up to 100% of funding to develop and deliver the solution.

They will also grant a licence to operate on the Tidal Thames on receipt of all other regulatory approvals and advise and assist the applicant in accessing the market on the Tidal Estuary.

If successful, you will have the opportunity to present to the Port of London Authority and potentially a panel of the port and vessel operators, to progress to position the port operators to establish a budget to develop the products if selected.


This competition will close at 12pm (noon), 30 April 2021.
