PORTOS aims to assess, develop and promote the integrated use of renewable energy resources in Atlantic Area ports and increase their energy efficiency, establishing a roadmap to a more competitive and sustainable sector.

Government Agency Puertos del Estado
OPPE is the government agency that is responsible for the coordination and efficiency control of the 28 Port Authorities of Spain, which manage the 46 most important Spanish ports. It has substantial expertise in management, planning and development of the port system.
OPPE is a regular partner on R&D and innovation projects with European funding, both leading and contributing to their development, mainly on CEF, FEDER, FP7 and INTERREG funding. It is regularly involved in an average of 6 European projects each year with that kind of transnational collaboration.
Role in the project
OPPE will be an associate partner that, as a potential user of the outcomes of PORTOS, will follow-up,
collaborate and, eventually, validate the proposed system for guiding ports towards self-sufficiency.
