Energy efficiency improvements in the maritime industry are being driven by economics, compliance and customer requirements.
The technological improvements and operational measures to get to the above is available. The Maritime Industry have been slow to adapt to the changing conditions for the market due to mainstream business practice but expectations from society and the recent regulatory developments have pushed towards a faster development of energy efficiency in the Maritime Industry.
Regulations have driven the energy efficient design improvements through the EEDI, included the emissions from operation through the EU MRV and IMO DCS and included the management of design and operations in the SEEMP. In 2023, the design index from existing vessels, the EEXI, will be mandatory and vessels in operation will be rated in a carbon emissions rating scheme, where bad rating will affect the vessels’ ability to operate.
This course will give the participant an overview of the energy efficiency options that are available in the Shipping Industry today. The course relates to the following subjects:
