How to decarbonise shipping

The European Commission proposal on the European Climate Law requires all emissions regulated in the EU, including shipping, to be reduced to net zero by 2050 at the latest. Such an ambitious political goal raises an important question as to how EU-related shipping could cut its GHG emissions in order to contribute its fair share. With that in mind, the study analyses technical, operational and fuel options that could help cut EU shipping emissions in line with the EU’s economy-wide targets. 

T&E analysed three scenarios that investigated the impact of different levels of energy efficiency improvements along with an ambitious but sustainable uptake of green e-fuels.
