summit 2022 • Valencia

Positive action: Delivering on shipping's energy transition


After two highly successful virtual conferences in 2021, will be delivering its first in-person event at the Port of Valencia, Spain. The summit 2022, which is supported by the Port Authority of Valencia, will be held on 27-29 April and will continue the global narrative of shipping’s energy transition, with a particular focus on developments and initiatives in Iberia and the wider Mediterranean region.

The first summit in 2021 provided excellent insights on the fuel and technology options that are – or will be – available to shipping as it plans its course to reach IMO 2030 and 2050 GHG emission reduction targets. The second summit looked at who will supply the new marine fuels and how the landside fuel supply infrastructure may evolve.

In Valencia, the summit will examine the rate and scale of progress in moving projects from the drawing board to commercialisation. It will also debate the two main approaches to shipping’s decarbonisation – aiming for net or absolute zero from the outset versus taking a step-by-step approach – and consider if they can be reconciled.

Using real-life case studies wherever possible, the summit 2022 will provide a platform for shipping, fuel and technology experts to share their insights on how projects can be brought to scale and commercialisation as the clock ticks down to 2030 and 2050.

The summit will feature a guided tour of the Port of Valencia to learn about its green initiatives and will also offer delegates the opportunity to attend training courses on LNG bunkering and the implications of ESG for shipping companies and the wider maritime community.
