The “Fit for 55 package” with the goal of reducing net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55 percent by 2030 compared to 1990, requires a restructuring of the energy systems in the ports in order to supply ships with energy with as few emissions as possible. The virtual intelligent port takes a holistic approach to optimize the entire energy system of a port based on digitalization, data analysis, and artificial intelligence (AI). The optimization aims to maximize energy generation from renewable sources, minimize energy consumption, and keep investment and operating costs to a minimum through intelligent energy management. The digital twin of the port is created with the involvement of all participants relevant for the generation and consumption of energy. It is a very individual system for each port and can be further developed with future developments of the port. The digital twin is the basis for optimization and thus for intelligent investment decisions and efficient energy management.
