Under the IMO-Norway GreenVoyage2050 Project, the Global Industry Alliance to Support Low Carbon Shipping (Low Carbon GIA) has released A Practical Guide to the Selection of Energy Efficiency Technologies for Ships. The Guide, along with its accompanying Excel tool, aims to help shipowners who are considering retrofits by providing valuable advice on factors and operating practices that should be taken into account when choosing pertinent technology.
According to Mr. David Connolly, Chief Technologist at Silverstream Technologies and Chair of the Low Carbon GIA Energy Efficiency Technologies and Operational Best Practices workstream, Transparency of performance is a major obstacle to adopting Energy Efficiency Technologies for Ships or EETs. The release of this Guide and the tool that goes with it is intended to assist shipowners and operators, especially those with limited in-house technical departments, in evaluating the potential energy savings of EETs and enabling more informed comparisons between various technologies.
