This workshop will review the state of the art of maritime decarbonisation from multiple viewpoints: the regulatory institutions, the research and academia, the industry, and an advocacy organization. It will also provide a special focus on the impact of COVID-19 on the maritime sector, and how it may have affected its pathway towards its decarbonisation.

The workshop’s main outcome shall be a cross-fertilization among experts and disciplines, which is much needed for successfully tackling the enormous challenges it faces.

The workshop will try to bring the latest technical advancements to the broadest audience. The speakers will be committed to an effort for plain communication, which will also foster cross-cutting interactions among them.

CMCC aims at furthering knowledge in the field of climate variability, its causes and impacts and their interactions with the global climate, through the development of high-resolution simulations of the atmosphere and ocean, surface and underground hydrology, environmental and socio-economic impact models.

  • Interreg Italy – Croatia #GUTTA project aims at reducing the carbon footprint of ferry routes between Italy and Croatia by means of weather oceanographic forecasts and automated route optimisation. Three main components are used to optimise the route such as the environmental forecasts of waves and sea surface currents provided by the Copernicus Marine Service, the ship routing model performed at the Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (#CMCC) computing facility in Lecce, Italy (making use of the computed routes of minimum CO2 emissions operational collected from a ship simulator available from the University of Zadar (#UNIZD) a partner of GUTTA project) and a web application for browsing its results. More than 7000 routes are freely available every day and downloadable from the website as well as the CO2 and carbon intensity indicator savings computed for routes between various ports, different departure times and ship engine loads. The web interface can support decision-making process before and during navigation.
    I am proud honoured to represent The Institution of Engineering and Technology (#TheIET) Italy Network and look forward to meeting as many of you as possible either in person or on-line at the final demonstration of the project on May 4th, 2022
