Watch: Buoy to act as charging station for vessels at sea

Maersk Supply Service, part of Danish shipping giant A.P. Moller-Maersk, and offshore wind company Ørsted have joined forces to test a proto-type buoy that will act as both a safe mooring point and a charging station for vessels, potentially displacing a significant amount of marine fuel with green electricity, to cut emissions. 

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.‎
