Workstreams

    Energy efficiency technologies (EETs)

    Under this workstream, the Low Carbon GIA is undertaking activities to encourage and support uptake of energy efficiency technologies and operational best practices.

    Activities:

    • Development of the GIA E-learning course on Energy efficient ship operation, aimed at seafarers and onshore personnel
    • Publications of a white paper on “validation of the performance of EETs for ships”
    • Development of a reporting protocol of performance of EETs for ships and associated confidence grading scheme
    • Creation of tools to grade confidence of performance​ of EETs for ships
    • Support for the IMO EET Information Portal and Appraisal Tool​ to provide a reference point for general EET information

    Alternative low- and zero-carbon fuels

    Activities:

    • Hosting of a roundtable on incentives for uptake of alternative fuels
    • Support for a study on the sustainability aspects and life-cycle emissions of alternative fuels – identifying relevant sustainability criteria and assessment of life-cycle emissions methodologies
    • Assessment of regulatory challenges to alternative fuels
    • Identification of barriers and challenges to ports and infrastructure with regards to alternative fuels

    Addressing emissions at the ship-port interface

    Activities:
