Study: Key energy pathways to zero-carbon shipping by 2050

LR and UMAS released a new study examining three key energy pathways to help identify the actions required for the shipping industry, both at the ship and supply infrastructure level, to transition to a zero-carbon future by 2050, in line with the IMO’s GHG Strategy 2050 ambition.

LR designs a pathway to a zero-carbon shipping industry

Lloyd’s Register (LR) will launch a new study looking at how shipping can be made a ‘zero-carbon industry’. According to LR’s statement, the study will be issued on January 29, and is a part of its  Low Carbon Pathways 2050 Series. LR noted that in order to achieve at least a 50% reduction in CO2 by 2050, it is of a great importance for Zero-emission vessels (ZEVs) to enter the fleet around 2030. 

BLOC wins MIT Solve’s Coastal Communities Challenge

Blockchain Labs for Open Collaboration MIT Solve’s Coastal Communities Challenge, for its work in developing shipping Emissions Monitoring Reporting solutions. The Solve’s Challenge Leadership Group judges opted the Solver teams as the ideal set of solutions showing potentials into tackling large-scale global challenges. 

New study defines decarbonisation pathway for shipping

In order for an ambitious GHG reduction strategy to be delivered, Zero Emission Vessels will need to form a significant proportion of newbuilds in shipping fleets from 2030. A new study by LR and UMAS demonstrates the viability of ZEVs, identifying what needs to be in place to make them a competitive solution for decarbonisation. 

Infographic: The path to decarbonisation

Lloyd’s Register issued an infographic, presenting the results of a joint research conducted by LR and UMAS, concerning what are the most important things that need to happen to make zero emission vessels a reality.
