Zero-Emission Vessels 2030 is a new study that aims to demonstrate the viability of zero-emission vessels (ZEVs)

Identifying the drivers that need to be in place to make them a competitive solution for decarbonisation, produced by LR and University Maritime Advisory Services (UMAS).

The report assesses seven technology options for ZEVs, applied to five different case study ship types across three different regulatory and economic scenarios. These options consist of various combinations of battery, synthetic fuels and biofuel for the onboard storage of energy, coupled with either a fuel cell and motor, internal combustion engine; or a motor for the conversion of that energy store into the mechanical and electrical energy required for propulsion and auxiliary services.
