DNV GL, KSOE to work on low and zero carbon shipping tech

DNV GL and Korea Shipbuilding & Offshore Engineering (KSOE) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU), aiming to cooperate on the development of low and zero carbon ship technology. The project will include additional study on LNG as a ship fuel, as well as an assessment on its potential as a transitional step to zero-carbon options.

Are alternative fuels ready for commercial use?

Jon Anders Ryste, Senior Consultant, Environment Advisory, DNV GL presents a recent study, whose ambition is to assess the commercial and operational viability of alternative marine fuels. The study analyzed six fuels, having LNG as its base for comparison.

Can LNG be a viable solution towards decarbonization?

Krishna Achuthanandam, Business Development Manager DLNG, Shell, talks about LNG, during a DNV GL webinar, explaining what LNG can offer, and why it is a viable solution for shipping to achieve decarbonization. Mr. Achuthanandam mentioned that regarding the environmental benefits LNG is the only scalable, low-carbon fuel available today, that helps us head towards carbon neutrality in shipping.

Collaboration presents digital twins for the oil and gas industry

TechnipFMC and DNV GL are collaborating to develop the oil and gas industry’s first methodology for qualifying the integrity of digital twin technology, aiming to help oil and gas operators, supply chain partners and regulators trust the concept of digital twins for performance and safety decision-making in projects and operations.

87 major companies join forces for a 1.5°C future

A global movement of 87 companies have joined forces on the ‘Business Ambition for 1.5°C — Our Only Future’ campaign,  promising to scale up their climate ambitions by setting science-based targets aligned with limiting global temperature rise to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.

Watch: Partners launch first device converting wave energy to electricity

AW-Energy, the Finnish wave energy developer, has completed the construction of the first commercial 350 kW WaveRoller unit, which is prepared for deployment at Peniche in Portugal. The device converting ocean wave energy to electricity, functions in near-shore locales at depths of 8 to 20 meters and the mechanism can be partially or entirely submerged depending on tidal conditions.

Gas to account 29% of world energy mix by 2050

By mid-century, the energy mix will be split almost equally between fossil and non-fossil sources, with oil declining steeply after 2030, but gas continuing to grow before leveling off at 29% of the energy mix by 2050, says DNV GL in its latest Energy Transition Outlook. 

Watch: The next generation talking about energy transition

On the occasion of the launch of its Energy Transition Outlook for 2019, DNV GL issued a video depicting the next generation talking about the energy transition. The children are talking on energy and provide their own forecasts for the future of energy. 

LNG the most viable alternative fuel, new report says

SEA\LNG published the results of a new alternative fuels study, finding that LNG is the most mature, scalable, and commercially viable alternative fuel currently available for the maritime industry. The study was conducted by DNV GL. The study concluded that while there are several lower or zero carbon alternative fuels that could assist in complying with IMO 2030 and 2050 GHG reduction targets.

The road to 2050 energy transition

In the most recent Energy Transition Outlook, DNV GL presents its timeline of the next 30 years of the energy transition, which shows many astonishing milestones. Namely, the one of the key takeaways of the timeline is the peak of energy supply and demand, but there are other significant milestones as well. According to the timeline oil will peak at 2022, while 4 years later transport energy demand will peak.
