The March 2023 issue, with the theme "Sustainable Ports," offers a comprehensive view of port electrification. This issue was championed by Prof. John Prousalidis of the National Technology University at Athens (NTUA, Greece) and Prof. Fabio D'Agostino of the University of Genova (Italy). Prof. Prousalidis and Prof. D'Agostino have served actively in many IAS and PES technical committees relevant to marine power systems and electric ships. There are eight feature articles and two columns. Major milestones of sustainable ports, e.g., establishing ship-to-shore electric interconnections and charging battery-powered electric vessels, are covered in these articles. The green port initiative was pushed by the European Union, and the contributing authors are from Europe's utility industry; manufacturers; and research institutes across Europe, e.g., Greece, Italy, the United Kingdom, and Norway.
