PANEL: Towards a zero emissions global fleet

Our expert panel discusses the challenges of upscaling electric and hybrid marine propulsion, andmoving beyond short sea passenger vessels:

  • Are diesel and LNG hybrids the solution to achieve the IMO’s target of 50% CO2 emissions reduction by 2050?
  • Can electric propulsion systems ever be commercially viable for transoceanic routes and large vessel types?
  • What drivers could be effective in overcoming shipowner hesitance and encouraging long term investment in decarbonisation?
