Shore-side power is coming to Sydney's White Bay Terminal and cruise ships will finally be able to plug into shorepower.

For the first time in the Southern Hemisphere, passenger liners heading for White Bay Terminal in 2024, will be able to berth and use renewable energy.

NSW's Port Authority concerted plan to introduce shore power in Sydney is expected to cut ~14,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year.

According to Philip Holliday (NSW Port Authority's CEO), that is equivalent to taking ~4000 passenger vehicles off the road or planting 70,000+ trees.
