Colchester Borough Council worked as a partner on the fully funded European project Su Ports (Sustainable Ports).  This EU cluster project was funded as part of the  INTERREG IV A "2 Mers Seas Zeeën" Crossborder Co-operation Programme, looking to improve sustainability in small port areas.

The final report from phase one of the project was published in 2014. 

Phase 2 of the project in 2015 has enabled  a heat mapping study of the old port area to be carried out.  This study has enabled Colchester Borough Council to attract further funding from the Department of Energy and Climate Changes' Heat Networks Delivery Unit (HNDU)  to begin to investigate the potential to develop a district heating network in the Hythe area of East Colchester.
