Clean Nordic shipping

With a combined coastline of 43.000 km trading and travelling by sea is essential in the Nordic countries.

Finding the optimal route to a green future for shipping

The maritime industry is facing a challenging green transition, diverting away from fossil fuels towards renewable energy sources.

There are many possible paths to a sustainable Nordic shipping industry, and this project aims to investigate which low carbon technologies are the most promising in the green transition.

Through a series of scenario studies, the Nordic energy model (ON-TIMES) is used to find the optimal paths to a fossil free shipping industry.

The project has a special focus on hydrogen and fuel cells in relation to the other low carbon options.
