GreenMotril for the decarbonisation of the Port of Motril
GreenMotril is the result of the need to implement sustainable and renewable energy models to decarbonise port environments and maritime transport, specifically in Motril.
Contribution to the achievement of the greenhouse gas emission reduction targets committed by the European Union in the Green Deal.
29,2 KTon of CO2
During the first 10 years GreenMotril will reduce the equivalent of the annual consumption of more than 10,000 vehicles.
The port's "Onshore Power Supply" sockets will be put into use and enhanced to supply large ships with electricity.
Thanks to the new generation plant, in the event of a grid failure, the Port will be able to guarantee basic services to its users.

Improving air quality
A company from Granada with more than 80 years of experience in the electricity generation and distribution sector will be in charge of operating and maintaining GreenMotril's renewable energy which will help to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases in the Port.
The organisation responsible for the administration of the most important port of Granada will provide the socio-economic environment for its users to access renewable energy sources and thus reduce the gases in its installations.
The GreenMotril project is co-financed in its CAPEX by the European Commission and its "Innovation Fund". The Innovation Fund will provide around EUR 38 billion of support from 2020 to 2030 (at EUR 75 / tCO2), depending on the carbon price, for the commercial demonstration of innovative low-carbon technologies, aiming to bring to the market industrial solutions to decarbonise Europe and support its transition to climate neutrality.
The goal is to help businesses invest in clean energy and industry to boost economic growth, create local future-proof jobs and reinforce European technological leadership on a global scale.
This is done through calls for large and small-scale projects focusing on:
