Lloyd's Register is releasing a new study in conjunction with London's University Maritime Advisory Services (UMAS) that aims to demonstrate the viability of zero-emission vessels (ZEVs).

Entitled 'Zero-Emission Vessels 2030', the report identifies the drivers that need to be in place to make ZEVs a competitive solution for decarbonization.

The report assesses seven technology options for ZEVs, applied to five different case study ship types across three different regulatory and economic scenarios.

The options consist of various combinations of battery, synthetic fuels and biofuel for the onboard storage of energy, coupled with either a fuel cell and motor, internal combustion engine, or a motor for the conversion of that energy store into the mechanical and electrical energy required for propulsion and auxiliary services.

The new study is due to be released later this month.

In October, Bunker Index reported that University College London (UCL), Global Maritime Forum, Carbon War Room and the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition (CPLC) had launched a task force on decarbonizing shipping.

The initiative has been set up to develop tangible pathways for shipping's decarbonization through five working groups, each focused on a key area of the industry. Outcomes of the task force are to be presented at the Global Maritime Forum's inaugural summit in October 2018.
