BP Energy Outlook 2020: Energy consumption shifts away from fossil fuels by 2050

In the main scenarios of this year’s BP Energy Outlook, global energy demand continues to grow for at least part of ‎the period to 2050. However, over this time, the structure of energy demand fundamentally ‎shifts, with a declining role for fossil fuels offset by an increasing share for renewable energy ‎and a growing role for electricity. ‎Decisive policy measures, such as significant increases in carbon prices, are needed to ‎deliver a lasting reduction in emissions from energy use.‎

Shipping decarbonization: What does the future hold

Shipping is experiencing increasing pressure to decarbonize its operations and to reduce emissions to air. In April 2018, the IMO adopted an ambitious GHG reduction strategy, aiming to reduce with at least 50% total GHG emissions from shipping by 2050. As it is expected, such an unprecedented change, poses challenges for a range of stakeholders, from ship owners, to ship builders, designers, and fuel suppliers financiers and policy makers.

Scientists measure cloud changes in busy shipping corridors

Researchers measured for the first time exactly how ship emissions affect clouds at a regional scale, by measuring cloud properties inside the shipping corridor using satellite data and compared them to what they estimated the values would be without shipping activity.

Consortium to reduce CO2 emissions in the Scheldt Delta region

A consortium of Belgian and Dutch companies including the LNG player Fluxys is taking the first step towards CO2 capture and storage, to reduce CO2 emissions in North Sea Port, the Belgian-Dutch area covering the port of Ghent in Belgium and the ports of Terneuzen and Vlissingen in the Netherlands.

LNG Bunkering vessels and barges: Where we stand

Following a greener path, the shipping industry is constantly searching for alternative fuels that will be in line with the environmental regulations, with LNG currently seeing a high demand.

Hydrogen vs Ammonia as future marine fuels

Decarbonization has been a major issue of discussion; Now, a new paper highlights that two potential low-emission fuels for long distance international shipping could be hydrogen (H2) and ammonia (NH3).
