Who has a clear view of the design of the ship of the future? (low emissions, greater efficiency, speed, digitalization, materials, engines, etc..)
Who will design the ship of the future?
What insights do we have into the commercial viability of future ship designs?
Who will take the investment risk on these technologies? What is the role of the capital provider and charterer?
Is LNG just a transition fuel? Hydrogen, ammonia, batteries, and nuclear?
Is there enough infrastructure in ports worldwide to facilitate new fuels?
Will we have new trades, requiring new ship types – e.g. hydrogen carriers and ammonia product tankers?
Agenda for action – next steps. What can we do now to help accelerate the availability of zero-carbon ships while at the same time reducing shipping’s footprint: slow steaming, retrofits, ESG reporting, and verification?
