The Baltic Sea Region has favorable conditions to become an example of clean shipping in the global context. There is no lack of ambition in this area, region has well-developed competencies and the necessary infrastructure. Are we making the most of it?
Our region is a front runner in terms of the established environmental standards, so the technological development should be adequate.
As countries and regions are increasingly looking for sustainable solutions, businesses seek to adapt and respond to these circumstances, while gaining a competitive advantage by offering innovative technologies in the field of alternative fuels.
It is clear that in the upcoming decade industry will be in a search for a most relevant energy source to address the environmental challenges and will be using different energy sources, possibly even on one vessel. There fore the integration of the value chains is a crucial aspect for the future of the maritime industry.
Opportunities to modernize shipping with the use of LNG, LBG, ammonia, hydrogen and to make processes integrated, are increasingly being explored. When LNG/LBG infrastructure is gaining the momentum for a deep-sea shipping and short sea shipping industries should look into possibilities how this development can technologically contribute to the application of hydrogen and liquid ammonia.
The Cool Gas as an Energy Source for Shipping event which will take place online on April 8, invites to review the topic of alternative fuels both from a broader perspective and by discussing the challenges related to this industry, which are important for Lithuania and especially for the Klaipeda region.
The event is organized within the framework of the project Liquid Energy by the Lithuanian Maritime Cluster, which is a member of a Lithuanian Hydrogen Platform, in cooperation with the Norvegian Shipping & Offshore Network.
Representatives of the Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Lithuania and energy sector, foreign experts, shipbuilding and other industries will give presentations, answer your questions and provide an interactive platform for discussions and further cooperation.
