Optimizing cost effectiveness of OPS

The cost effectiveness of environmental measures is given by the ratio between their costs and benefits, the latter expressed in terms of avoided emissions. This yardstick allows different measures to be compared.

In the case of OPS, cost effectiveness can be improved by taking measures to reduce costs and/or by opting for cleaner electricity. A few examples:

A broader option would be not to equip entire terminals with OPS, but to restrict it to a limited number of berths and ensure these berths have high occupancy.

With the OPS calculation tool, the cost effectiveness of alternative options can be calculated.
