October 11th: The forum
In 2023, there may well be some key developments in the European arena which are intended to accelerate shipping’s decarbonisation, such as the inclusion of shipping in the Emissions Trading System (ETS). METF 2022 is therefore well timed to assess what European regulations will mean for shipping’s journey to zero and to review the pace of decision-making in terms of global regulation.
The Forum, will also ask whether cross-sector partnerships and collaboration are already accelerating commercial, operational and technological progress in terms of the switch to new energy sources for the shipping and bunkering sectors.
The Forum, now in its third edition, has gained a strong reputation for focusing on key and innovative projects in the ARA region and Northern Europe that are really driving the energy transition in shipping and in ports. In 2022, METF will again showcase some of the initiatives – which may be at the pilot stage or already at commercial scale – that are demonstrating what is already possible in terms of meeting decarbonisation targets.
METF provides a platform for some of the leading experts on shipping’s energy transition to share their knowledge and insights. By the end of the Forum, delegates will have a clear and informed picture of what has been achieved in the decarbonisation of shipping – as well as the scale of the task ahead.
