Abstract
This thesis focuses on cold ironing for vessels while berthed at port, with the port of Copenhagen as main case study. With the use of this technique, which is considered by the International Marine Organization (IMO) as a measure to reduce air pollution and noise deriving from shipping activities in ports and coastal areas, vessels are able to shut down their auxiliary engines in order to generate power and replace it with electricity supplied by the shore.
From next year, in 2014, Copenhagen will have a new cruise ship terminal and the port of Copenhagen, in conjunction with the City of Copenhagen are currently investigating the feasibility of installing cold ironing for the new quay. Existing uncertainties regarding the magnitude of... (More)

From next year, in 2014, Copenhagen will have a new cruise ship terminal and the port of Copenhagen, in conjunction with the City of Copenhagen are currently investigating the feasibility of installing cold ironing for the new quay. Existing uncertainties regarding the magnitude of the investment risk hindering the implementation of this technique and therefore there is a need for a leader that can push this shift. After a brief mapping of the key players involved, the role of the municipality of Copenhagen, because of its strong local contextual proximity, has been considered as the most suitable in facilitating this harbour's transition.
The research tries to detect some of the measure that the municipality of Copenhagen could undertake to encourage the development of cold ironing for the new terminal. The findings of the study highlight the strong political dimension of this transition and identify the necessity of creating a pool of Danish and Baltic municipalities in order to exert the indispensable pressure for changing the legislative framework related to the use of cold ironing as a main priority (Less)
