Workstreams

    Energy efficiency technologies (EETs) and operational best practices

    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 in the ship-port interface

    Activities:
