Session 4: Forecasting zero and low carbon fuels; current status future developments and data needs – Fleet management and simulation tools

The maritime industry’s ambitious decarbonization goals call for fleet managers’ strategic choice for fleet renewal, both through retrofit and new constructions. In addition, an increased complex regulatory matches competing zero and low carbon fuels, maturity level of technologies and compliance with regulations (EEDI, EEXI, CII, MRVC, EU ETS). The workshop will integrate these questions with a case study of applicability with wind-assisted ship propulsion technologies. This workshop will discuss how data (fleet register, fuel prices, technological forecasting) is used to manage fleet investments. Questions to be addressed include:
•    What is the potential of cost forecasting tools to identify best scenarios of environmental technological upgrade in current fleets?
•    What is the maturity level and forecasting status of zero and low carbon fuels?


Keywords: Fleet management; Simulation; Cleaner technologies; Zero and low emissions; CII, EU-ETS; Energy-saving technologies
