Energy Transition Outlook 2018

Maritime forecast to 2050

This year’s Maritime Forecast zeroes in on the IMO strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. New fuels, and energy-efficient design and operation, are key to this.

We detail:

  • New ‘barometers’ indicating world-fleet decarbonization and readiness of alternative fuels 
  • Uptake and characteristics of relevant technologies, i.e. dual-fuel engines, fuel cells, and battery electric power 
  • How fuel flexibility and bridging technologies can smooth transition from traditional fuels
  • CO2 emissions and which fuels are likely to be in the mix towards 2050 
  • A new multi-scenario approach for robust newbuilding strategy based on our expanded concept of future-proof ships
