E-harbours Movement

Parallel Sessions

Port & City; Connected Energy

  1. Serious game HEAT – Alliander
HEAT is a serious game in which you design, together with other stakeholder, a district heating network in a 3D virtual world.  Normally, the development of such a network is complicated, because the consequences of plans are unclear. HEAT offers you feedback on several aspects like CO2-reduction and costs. It makes the design of a heating network transparant. Learn how to design a heating network. 

  2. Industrial Network Tool – Juliette Duszynski – Urbanisation Agency Le Havre
A Decision Support System that integrates energy, economy, logistics and environment. This tool is aimed at modeling the territory through its added value links as in exchange and interrelations between industrial sites, between ports and industrial sites and between ports themselves. This workshop deals with the philosophy of this project, the stakeholders, how it is built, the use of GIS technology, the results expected and how this approach and tool could be exported and duplicated on other port cities.

  3. Innovations for optimizing the use of energy in district heating network of Zaanstad – Peter Wolbert – Cofely
In Zaanstad, several stakeholders are developing a unique district heating network for an existing housing district including schools and a municipal bathing pool. The necessary heat is produced by a biomass plant and a water treatment plant, which is located in the area and purifies sewage from the residential area. With a heat pump the heat is gained from the sewage. The system is connected by a district heat pipe to the customers. The combination of these elements is distinctive and an example for areas elsewhere.

  4. Developing industrial symbiosis with new stakeholders – Ellen Corke & Charlotte Hauksson – City of Malmö
E-harbours was a starting point for Malmö’s work within the field of industrial symbiosis. From that point there’s now an increasingly group of interested stakeholders who are ready to commit, investigate untapped resources and open up for new cooperation’s. Within this workshop we are interested to keep a dialogue around some of the key questions when developing and implementing industrial symbiosis, and also look in to the similarities and differences between European port areas. Join us for interesting and inspiring discussions that can lead to new opportunities!

  5. Industrial symbiosis in practice in Zeeland and the crucial role of the port authority – Peter Geertse – Zeeland Seaports/Biopark Terneuzen

Exchange of heat, CO2 and Hydrogen creating double win situations. Participation from different industries, varying from oil refineries to manure and greenhouses. 3 practical and operational cases are dealt with.

  6. Combining forces in an integrated hub – Carla Jong & Wouter Jacobs – Port of Amsterdam 
The Port of Amsterdam is more than a transhipment centre, it is a tightly integrated hub where raw materials, cargo, residual flows, energy, data, people and ideas all come together, where new technologies are given a chance, and where there is the scope for experimentation. The port of Amsterdam in 2030 is a dynamic, versatile, adaptable and metropolitan “port ecosystem”. Bring in your ideas and let’s talk about the opportunities of combining the forces of the port, the city and the region as a strong basis for this circular economy. What should be the best way to create interconnectedness between different flows and industries achieving added benefits of economies of scale, crosspollination and innovation?

  7. New synergies in implementation industrial ecology – Nicolas Mat – Port of Marseille
The port area of Marseille is involved in the implementation of industrial ecology by promoting the development of new synergies between port industries but also with the city and the agricultural community. Different energy symbiosis are already implemented and some new projects are still in progress in the harbour and metropolitan area of Marseille. Based on the description of the historical socio-ecological transition of Marseille port area, this presentation could provide insights into innovative regional eco-industrial development strategies for moving toward a low-carbon future in industrial port areas.
