Electro fuels for long-range maritime transport

Project Details


To realize the massive emission reductions targeted by IMO and EU for maritime transport - and to attain global net zero emissions from this sector by 2050 the latest in line with the Paris agreement - ship propulsion must be based on carbon-neutral fuels. The question is which fuels to go for and to develop engine and storage solutions for. This depends on two factors: 1) The potential fuel cost and availability, and 2) the cost of retrofitting or new-building ships, which then can run on the various fuel alternatives. This project brings together partners from both sides to develop scenarios for a transition towards green shipping.
The project was funded by the Maritime Fund and Lauritzen.
