AMS-III.BP.: Emission Reduction by Shore-Side Electricity Supply System applies to shore-side electricity supply to ships docked at berths, displacing electricity produced from ships’ fossil fuel auxiliary power generator(s). This methodology revision expands the scope of AMS-III.BP to include off-shore electricity supply systems such as power buoys that provide electricity to ships waiting off-shore to dock.


The proposed revision is being developed by Carbonomics LLC, and is currently at “Step 4: Public Stakeholder Consultation” of the VCS Methodology Development and Review Process, v4.3 (PDF).

The consultation for this proposed revision is open from February 13, 2024, to March 14, 2024. Stakeholders are encouraged to submit feedback using the M0186 Comment Template (xlsx) to
