Lloyd’s Register conducted a report for the UK’s Oil and gas Authority (OGA) in efforts to explore the country’s upstream opportunities to cut its GHG emissions, amid its announcement in becoming the first major economy to pass a net zero law for greenhouse gas emissions.
The Oil & Gas UK (OGUK) along with Lloyd’s Register came together and discussed the emerge issue of how the shipping industries will achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions. Specifically, the Chief Executive of OGUK, Deirdre Michie and the LR’s Energy Director, David Clark shared their opinions in order to spread the “Roadmap 2035”.
Today, over 87% of merchant vessels are carrying GNSS receivers, usually feeding into an ECDIS for establishing position, speed and heading. If GNSS-based position information is unavailable, it leads to other systems such as AIS becoming unavailable.
The best opportunities for decarbonization of shipping lie in finding new sustainable energy sources, says a new study by Danish shipping giant A.P. Moller – Maersk and Lloyds Register which identifies alcohol, biomethane, and ammonia as the best positioned fuels for research and development into net zero fuels.
