Marine Energy Transition Forum

This year’s Marine Energy Transition Forum (METF) will take a more granular look at what the energy transition means to the maritime sector, by exploring how fuel and technology choices will be influenced by vessel trades and routes.

Speakers will consider how these factors are impacting on shipowners’ strategies on decarbonisation and when they may choose to make the key decisions on fleet renewal and retrofits. Vessel routes may also present challenges in terms of bunker supply infrastructure and the adoption of some technologies.

METF will look at the decarbonisation options for different vessel types, across the deep sea, short sea and inland sectors. The discussions at the Forum will also be informed by changes in global and regional environmental mandates and legislation, the availability of finance to deliver shipping’s energy and transition, and the impact of digitalisation on vessel and voyage optimisation.

As always, a focal point of this year’s event will be the pivotal roles of ports and terminal operators in supporting ships and trade flows as the maritime industry moves inexorably towards a net zero future.
