Shipping is in an era of energy transition. By 2030 it aims to reduce GHG emissions by 40%. New, low carbon fuels seem to dominate the debate but are no panacea. Clean technology will play a significant part but brings with it investment decisions which are far from facile. This Webinar is an opportunity to hear informed perspectives on ‘smart investment’ from of an expert panel.

Topics include:

  • How can retrofitting clean technology de-risk the existing fleet? Can older vessels remain competitive and therefore fundable? What happens as new, better performing vessels enter the market?
  • Picking winners or financing multiple technologies?
  • Who pays for clean technology?
  • When is the right time to invest? How available is retrofit clean tech?
  • How will the impact of carbon tax, levies and ETS affect the market?
