The energy supply of the future should no longer be fossil fuelled. Wind and solar energy produced at a remote distance must be made transportable. With present day technologies a new and green energy supply chain is feasible. What does it take to make shipping’s energy sustainable and future-proof?
There are about 85,000 ships in the world with half of them at least 15 years old. Reuse of building materials has always been part of the marine industry, but can we go further than just reusing the old materials? This challenge will apply the strategies for a circular economy to the world of shipbuilding.
The transition to a sustainable economy requires shipowners to equip their ships with new systems in addition to switching to other fuels, energy carriers and propulsion mechanisms. What will the future hold and how do we tackle this crucial challenge?
