In this context, the Alternative Fuels Insight (AFI) platform seeks to help shipowners and other maritime stakeholders to monitor the global uptake of alternative fuels and assess the best options for vessels.

The platform namely provides freely accessible tools for visualising and analysing high-quality data, aiming to improve transparency for maritime authorities and intelligence for equipment suppliers.

It will assist ship owners select a fuel for the vessels they order today and in coming years, and fuel suppliers weighing up investment in new bunkering infrastructure,
