Conference Day One
Tuesday, October 15th, 2019
An exploration of future proof ship designs, technologies and energy sources to reduce CO2 emissions in line with IMO’s GHG targets towards 2030-2050.
· Introduction of IMO’s GHG vision 2030-2050
· Future fuel mix & energy sources
· Developing ‘future proof’ vessel design
In the search for a viable alternative to LNG, the question becomes one of responsibility. Who is to shoulder the inevitably significant financial strain of the R&D?
Shipping businesses argue that this responsibility lies with the fuel providers. However, fuel providers cannot be alone in this as any solution they reach will be immediately adopted by their competitors and will therefore fail to provide a positive ROI.
Our expert panel will moot this point, stating their cases and challenging each others argument to identify who the burden for research should sit with, if research partnerships are truly viable and how these can work in practice.
