Decarbonizing Maritime: A Role for Alternative Fuels and Offshore Wind

To reach decarbonization goals for the shipping industry set by the United Nations IMO, the first net-zero ships likely need to enter the global fleet by 2030. But the environmental impact of the maritime sector is more than the sum of its vessels’ emissions; the OECD estimates that carbon and NOx footprints of ports will grow fourfold in the next 30 years unless they invest in emissions-free operations and power generation.

Join SeaAhead and our partners for a lively exploration of the potential for offshore wind, green hydrogen, and other alternative fuels to help drive a decarbonized maritime industry, at sea and in port, by 2050.

Tuesday, May 25 at 10:00am to 12:00pm
