Shipping is the key to international trade. Our aim should be to make it more environmentally
friendly. The proliferation of 'green' legislation and heightened environmental expectations
generally have created new market opportunities and seen the emergence of technological
solutions that attempt to enhance the green profile of the shipping industry. This presentation
will discuss the opportunities that exist in the area of alternative sources of power and the
potential energy savings by design solutions. Reference will be made to the current
technology measures available and define the alternative sources of power that may be
useful for ship design. The second part of the presentation will discuss the current green
shipping technology outlook. Those are divided into technologies that may affect our industry
over the short to medium term or over the long term. As a case study a brief analysis of the
results from a theoretical study into kite-assisted propulsion will be discussed.
