Infrastructure, vessel & asset efficiency to lower CO2
The efficiency of assets from port infrastructure and equipment to vessel design, retrofitting and means to improve fuel efficiency is estimated to enable > 15% reduction in emissions.
Many innovative solutions are emerging in this space.
Areas we are looking to explore with startups:
- Alternative energy sources such as kites and other renewable energy sources for ports and vessels
Propeller, vessel flow efficiencies
Higher output from combustion
New vessel designs (including electricity and fuel cell powered vessels)
Sensor technology to optimize fuel consumption
Operational “behaviour” (fx how captains and key operations personnel are enabled and incentivised to optimize for Co2 reduction)
Vessel supply with 3D printing and drones to save time in port (or avoid calling all together)
