Kiel launched a new shore power facility on December 9. The facility provides 100% green electricity, thus also avoiding NOX-, SOX- and particle emissions during port stay.


Kiel's mayor Dr. Ulf Kämpfer inaugurated the new façade of the shore power facility, which was co-funded by the state government of Schleswig-Holstein (8,9 m Euro) and the EU (1,26 m Euro).

In addition, Germany´s federal government recently agreed on a political package to decrease the user prices for on-shore electricity significantly.
