Oxford Economics – CIP – IRU Report:
Energy Efficiency on Ports: Trends and Best Practices
The CIP establishes as one of its priority areas the sustainable management and use on ports, making it compatible with environmental protection. In this context, energy efficiency is set as one of the fundamental pillars in the present and future of the ports, facilitating the achievement of their sustainability.
This Note presents a series of diagnostic areas that countries can use to evaluate existing legislation. It identifies areas that are not regulated and those that must be adapted to a new port model. It establishes specific definitions and clear guidelines on port policy. Finally, it identifies 30 elements that all port legislation should contain.
The guide establish the basic laws, wich currently involves the port sector and related services, to ensure legal security and privite investment through concessions, authorizations, contract or any other form of privite participations in ports. In addition, provide a legal framework that allows for efficient and competitive management and operations, without becoming an obstacle to environmental, and port security and safety measures.
The Model Law identifies and describes 29 elements that port legislation should contain.
