Shoreham Port set to become a centre for low-carbon energy

A Development Plan that will provide the investment into making a major south coast port a centre for low-carbon energy and sustainability has been agreed between MITIE, a strategic outsourcing and energy services company, and Shoreham Port Authority.

The development of renewable and energy efficient assets, which will benefit the local economy, will be a priority for the ten-year partnership.

MITIE will consider a wide range of renewable and low-carbon energy strategies for the 52 hectares of land owned by Shoreham Port.

However, an evaluation of the possibilities for wind and solar power is already underway, as the port’s location near Brighton particularly lends itself to these technologies.
