International Maritime Organization (IMO) agrees on energy efficiency of new ships

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) and its Member States adopted on 18 July 2011 the first globally binding measure to improve energy efficiency of new ships and limit CO2 emissions from international maritime transport. The newly adopted Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) sets technical standards for improving the energy efficiency of certain categories of new ships which will, in turn, lead to less CO2 emissions – approximately 25-30% reductions by 2030 compared to Business as Usual (BAU). The EEDI will become mandatory from 2015, and will require a minimum energy efficiency level for different ship types and sizes. The EEDI will be applied to the largest segments of the world merchant fleet, and is expected to cover as much as 70% of emissions from new ships. Ships' CO2 emissions are directly proportional to its fuel consumption, with, on average, 3 ...Zum vollständigen Artikel
