  • The main environmental focus of the cruise industry is shifting towards de-carbonization to reduce the climate impact
  • Both reduction of the energy demand and efficiency improvements will be high on the agenda, but there must also be new cleaner fuels to meet the GHG emission reduction targets.
  • The industry is exploring alternative fuels with less carbon content, such as hydrogen, ammonia and synthetic methane. But which is the most promising alternative for cruise ships?
  • The total well-to-wake chain including fuel production must be considered when evaluating future fuels and not only the local emissions from the ship?
  • How will alternative fuels impact the ship design?
  • Batteries and hybrid solutions also offer a very important contribution to cleaner shipping
