The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Shipping’s decarbonisation dilemma

A special edition of the Lloyd’s List Podcast this week features an extended debate on shipping’s decarbonisation prospects, taking in everything from state support, future fuel options, fake zeros and the overwhelming need for clarity and standard definitions when it comes to ambitions

Debating shipping’s decarbonisation pathways on this week’s podcast: Peter Boyd from Yale University, Matthieu de Tugny from Bureau Veritas, Tristan Smith from University College London’s Energy Institute and Adrian Tolson from Blue Insight

CORONAVIRUS has bowled the decarbonisation debate a curve-ball, but it is not beyond the realms of possibility that the post-Covid global economy will feature some hefty green recovery incentives from those governments looking for an ‘intelligent recovery’.

The shipping industry is in the phase of piloting, trials and research development deployment — a process that was always going to be dependent on government support — and there’s a world in which that happens faster as a result of coronavirus.

So we’re back on familiar ground for the podcast this week talking about shipping’s decarbonisation pathways, but with the intention of moving the debate beyond the quite general points that have dominated such discussions to this point.

This week is something of a special edition of the podcast featuring four esteemed experts who have been  drafted in with the brief to steer us away from the theoretical towards a more pragmatic and practical view of how shipping can start investing in a zero carbon future.

Featured this week on the decarbonisation debate:

• Peter Boyd, lecturer and resident fellow at Yale University, former chief operating officer, Carbon War Room
• Matthieu de Tugny, executive vice-president, Bureau Veritas Group, Marine & Offshore
• Tristan Smith, reader at University College London’s (UCL) Energy Institute
• Adrian Tolson, director, lead, BLUE Insight
