Alternative Fuels

A wide range of alternative fuels for ships are currently under discussion and the maritime fuel landscape is continuously evolving. These materials presents a comprehensive resource on alternative fuels and aim to support maritime stakeholders in making informed decisions. Whether government officials looking to spur innovation, ship owners selecting a fuel for ships they order, or fuel suppliers weighing up investments in new bunkering infrastructure, the resources here can support informed decision making on alternative low- and zero- carbon fuels.
