UK awards £33M to 33 projects for green technologies for ports and ships

The UK is awarding £33 million to 33 projects across all 12 regions of the UK to develop green technologies for ports and ships. The funding comes from the fourth round of the government’s Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition (CMDC4), which focuses on developing a range of clean maritime technologies including electric, hydrogen, ammonia, methanol, wind power and more.

CMDC4 builds on 3 successful previous rounds, which allocated more than £95 million to 105 projects and leveraged more than £45 million in private investment.

The funding comes from the wider £206 million UK Shipping Office for Reducing Emissions (UK SHORE) programme, announced in March 2022. The CMDC is one of the many initiatives from UK SHORE to fund green technology. Last year, the government launched the Zero Emission Vessels and Infrastructure (ZEVI) competition to support projects in the latter stages of development and the Clean Maritime Research Hub—aimed at the early science and research behind green technology.
