Petrospot is taking its next exciting step in delivering industry-leading news and market intelligence to the marine fuels and shipping sectors with the creation of ship.energy, an open access platform providing news, comment, and expert analysis of shipping’s journey towards a net zero emission future.
Building on Bunkerspot’s comprehensive knowledge and coverage of the global bunker industry, ship.energy will report on the innovative and cutting edge projects and initiatives that will enable shipping to meet and move beyond the IMO’s 2050 GHG reduction targets. Many new fuels and emissions-reducing technologies are still at a relatively early stage of development and some way off commercial scalability, so ship.energy will also focus on global and national political, financial and collaborative approaches that will be catalysts to drive the marine energy transition.
ship.energy will look at the ‘whole ship’ in terms of energy efficiency and emissions reduction, including developments in vessel design, onboard energy management and the ship-to-shore interface.
The free-to-view ship.energy platform will sit alongside, and complement, Petrospot’s flagship publication, Bunkerspot, which will continue to provide ‘best in class’ coverage of the commercial, operational and technical developments in today’s marine fuels industry.
‘ship.energy is a natural progression for Petrospot and adds a new and exciting dimension to its portfolio of industry-leading publications, conferences and training for the global bunker industry,’ says Lesley Bankes-Hughes, Director of Publishing, Petrospot Limited.
‘There will be many energy and technology solutions to enable shipping to deliver on future emissions targets, and the marine fuels sector as we know it will also co-exist with new energy innovations for decades to come.’
She continued: ‘The marine energy landscape will, of course, include long-established industry stakeholders who are already engaged in major projects – both at the R&D and commercial level – but new, small business start-ups will also be part of the innovation process.
‘Together, Bunkerspot and ship.energy will report on the marine energy sector as it is today and how it takes shape in the future, and I am delighted to be working with our industry partners as Petrospot embarks on its own energy transition.’
The ship.energy platform will launch in summer 2020. Register here for updates and to find out how you can be involved with ship.energy.
