Many seaports are facing increasing pressure to reduce their carbon footprint, while increasing their energy efficiency and global competitiveness. Moreover, energy consumption in seaports is continuously monitored to manage the increasing energy costs, these rising costs are reflected in the increased fuel demand. The fishing industry is one of the most energy intensive activity at seaports. In addition, the global human consumption of fish increased dramatically from 1950 to 2012. This paper will develop a roadmap to convert fishing ports into carbon-free ports. A number of techniques and methodologies will be used to analyze energy consumption in the port and buildings, and will include sustainability informed decision making. The overall objective of the net-zero port is to reduce energy dependence from the national grid by taking advantage of the electricity produced locally from solar energy. The roadmap that we have developed will contribute to the emergence of carbon-free fishery port ecosystem that can implement sustainable energy practices, including an assessment of the quality of the energy used in the fishery port and informed practices for promoting carbon-free societies.
