Port of Dover reveals new solar panelled roofing



The Port has proven its mission to be a sustainable Port for the future by transforming its former multi-storey car parks into state of the art, solar panelled roofing.

This bold move contributes to the Port’s aim of reducing carbon footprint by 5% each year, working towards a zero carbon future. It has already been successful in achieving reductions in its carbon footprint (41% since 2008), exceeding EU and UK targets to achieve a 20% reduction in carbon emissions by 2020.

Liz Fagg, Environment Manager from the Port of Dover says:

“The impact of climate change on our fragile environment has never been so apparent. As one of the world’s busiest passenger ports, it is important that we source our energy from sustainable sources and capturing solar generated energy does just that.”

The two multi storey car parks were previously above the current Passenger Terminal in the Eastern Docks Ferry Terminal. In 2016, the building was refurbished as part of the Traffic Management Improvement Project. This new roof, which includes the solar panels and new cladding is the final phase of the re-construction and will be complete in the summer.

The Port has been working in partnership with Beond energy consultants and EvoEnergy.
