Portugal Shipping Week 2024 • Lisbon

The ship.energy summit 2024

Sustaining momentum: sourcing technology, finance and skills for shipping’s decarbonisation

Wednesday 8 - Thursday 9 May

Shipping is facing an era of profound change as it navigates its route through the energy transition. However, policymakers and regulators have now given the industry some clarity around the milestones for its decarbonisation. In terms of timelines, the IMO’s revised greenhouse gas strategy has provided a foundation on which shipping stakeholders can begin to construct and implement their respective decarbonisation strategies, while the phased entry into force of new European environmental regulation will impact global shipping and require individual companies to address their technology and energy requirements in the short, mid and longer term as part of their approach to regulatory compliance.

But with GHG emission reduction targets in sight, comes the reality check. This year’s ship.energy summit will consider how companies should formulate their decarbonisation plans, and then put them into action, with a particular focus on how evaluate the technologies (and energy sources) that are best for them, how to access finance and support for projects, retrofits and fleet renewal, and how to ‘futureproof’ their workforce for employment in a post-fossil fuel environment.

As always, the ship.energy summit will look at the industry’s progress on decarbonisation with reference to case studies and real projects, and with a focus on initiatives in Iberia.


PSW Week Pass: £345 (€395)
Pass includes the ship.energy summit & Green Shipping Seminar

SESSION TWO: Making a difference

This session will look at the technologies already available to improve vessel efficiency, optimise performance, and reduce GHG emissions. How can owners and operators move beyond the ‘sales pitch’ and select the technologies that will really benefit their businesses and demonstrably improve their environmental profile. This session will also look at how digitalisation can assist stakeholders in putting together and delivering on their decarbonisation strategies.

SESSION THREE: Spoilt for choice?

Low and zero-emission energy sources will be the focus of this session. How should marine fuel buyers and suppliers be preparing for a multi-fuel future and, realistically, which energies sources will be available to them in the short term and on a longer time scale. Speakers will also discuss how the supply infrastructure and safety/handling regulations (onshore and onboard) are developing in tandem with the new fuels – and what have we learnt already about the operational characteristics of the new bunker fuels.

    Further to above and within the Technical Commission, now undertaking the mission to preserve the well renamed MAR ship registry, to continue the efforts and develop the same to be one of the world’s leading registries, well known for the quality of their fleet and the support given to all the entities that trust in MAR and see the registry as one of the most reliable and solid options for the future.

    An high level of motivation drives me and the remaining Technical Commission to continue setting up the right conditions and also restrictions to allow the registry to grow and to maintain the quality that is already a characteristic and a synonym of MAR, all of this to be achieved and consolidated within a different and challenging world.
