summit (7-8 September 2021)

Creating the energy supply and support infrastructure for shipping’s decarbonisation

The first summit in March offered some excellent insights on the fuel and technology options that are or may be available to shipping as it considers future energy pathways. It also looked at the key drivers for decarbonisation, such as national and corporate regulation, cross-industry partnerships, ESG policies and availability of finance.

The second in 2021’s series of summits will move forward to take a very practical approach to the energy revolution. Who will supply the new marine fuels and how will the landside supply infrastructure be put in place? Who will foot the massive bill for the supply infrastructure for multiple new fuels? How are ports working to support the provision of new fuels? Will the bunker hubs of today be the supply hubs of tomorrow? Are the technical and safety regulations and guidelines governing fuel supply evolving at a sufficient pace?
