Maritime Forecast To 2050: Fuel Flexibility Key To Competitiveness In Low-Carbon Shipping Future

DNV GL has published a fuel forecast for the maritime industry. The forecast shows that the uptake of low-carbon and carbon-neutral fuels is essential to meeting IMO GHG goals, with carbon-neutral fuels having to supply 30% to 40% of the global fleet’s total energy by 2050. In the deep-sea sector, ammonia, biodiesel, liquid biogas and electro fuels are promising carbon-neutral options, with battery, hybrid and hydrogen solutions being potential options for the short-sea segment.
