Transport

Decarbonizing transport is key to all pathways to get to net zero.

The transport sector is responsible for almost a quarter of total energy-related COemissions. Around 75% of these emissions come from road transport. Another 22% comes from aviation and marine, but these emissions are harder to abate than road transport, which can more easily switch to alternative fuels or use electric power.

Decarbonizing shipping will require a range of solutions. OGCI is working on the development of low-carbon fuels, such as biofuels, ammonia, hydrogen and E-fuels. We have also supported the development of carbon capture for ships to capture emissions for storage.

How shipping sector can cut CO2

Pathways:

  • Early pursuit of zero carbon fuels for new ships
  • Moderate uptake of interim and drop in fuels
  • Maximize decarbonization with carbon capture and alternative fuels 

Biofuels can help decarbonize shipping

Study shows potential:

  • Biomass for marine fuels could be part of a range of solutions
  • More legislative support is needed for volumes to ramp up
  • Sustainability is a key issue
