The Lloyd’s List Podcast: A case for optimism in shipping’s zero-carbon challenge

Fuel and infrastructure availability should not be a barrier to shipping’s rapid decarbonisation. Aligning the industry with a 1.5°C Paris Agreement temperature goal is entirely feasible with the right development in the Global South, argues Trafigura. But nothing happens without a carbon price and regulatory clarity this year. Can we do it? This week’s edition of the podcast makes the optimistic case that all this is within reach

Shipping’s carbon ambitions suffer a serious credibility gap

The case for a more holistic approach to regulation

Flawed efficiency projects such as CII have sparked a wholesale review of how regulation is developed. A more iterative and holistic approach that factors in the expectation of unintended commercial consequences now needs to be more rigorously embraced

Coal-fired power station
Is there a case against prioritising shipping’s zero-carbon fuel switch?

Has the politicised focus on shipping’s eventual fuel transition provided a pretext for inaction and deferred more immediate gains in energy efficiency? Is there an argument for shipping not being at the front of the queue for limited renewables to produce sustainable fuels? Two recent studies offer two very different perspectives of the industry’s zero-carbon priorities

Smoke stack
Uncertainty is holding back industry decarbonisation, not technology

If the political stars align and the right demand signals can be emitted, the latest analysis suggests that even the most ambitious decarbonisation scenarios are no longer limited by the technical and commercial readiness of zero-carbon fuels, technologies, infrastructure or yards. The industry, however, remains uncertain and unconvinced.
