Future Fuels Webinar 23 April 2020
Join IBIA’s Director Unni Einemo, Lloyd’s List managing editor Richard Meade and a panel of leading shipping and bunker industry experts as they offer an insiders’ view of how shipping will fuel its future and how businesses can avoid the transitional pitfalls along the way.
For all the positive progress towards decarbonizing shipping, the industry was struggling to make tangible investment decisions even before the economic tsunami of coronavirus crashed through the global markets, upending every aspect of the shipping industry in its wake.
While the long-term goals remain unchanged, decarbonisation could now take a back seat while governments focus on rebuilding their economies, injecting further uncertainty into the regulatory timelines and leaving owners wary of making any firm decisions.
And yet progress cannot be paused completely. Strategies will have to adapt and decisions will have to be taken. Previous assumptions regarding bridging technologies and fuel flexibility that would facilitate the transition from traditional fuels, may now need to be revisited as timelines extend.
But one thing is a given – increasing complexity now comes as standard and there is no one size fits all solution to the industry’s multi-fuel future with uncertainty pervading every decision from the immediate arbitrage opportunities fueled by transitioning fuel strategy to the longer-term future-proofing required to invest in ships, infrastructure and new business models.
Lloyd’s List managing editor Richard Meade alongside a panel of leading shipping and bunker industry experts will offer an insiders’ view of how shipping will fuel its future and how businesses can avoid the transitional pitfalls along the way. Key talking points will include:
The risks and impact of changing emission regulations
The changing fuels landscape
Analysing the feasibility of alternative fuels in the R&D pipeline
