IMO has launched a new website, a key feature of which is an information portal on energy efficiency technologies – covering areas such as machinery, propulsion and hull improvements, and energy recovery. For each section, different technologies are listed with information on how mature they are.
Definitions of maturity levels according to uptake across the maritime industry, and degree of proven technology/principle
Proven, new or existing technology/principle, with high uptake across the industry.
Proven, new or existing technology/principle, but with limited uptake across the industry.
New unproven-, unproven existing- , or proven existing technology/principle but with very few installations and little to no operational experience.
Website launched for GloMEEP energy efficiency project
IMO’s continuing efforts to promote environmentally sound shipping received a boost today with the launch of Glomeep.imo.org. The new website provides important information and updates on the Global Maritime Energy Eﬀiciency Partnerships (GloMEEP) project – a GEF-UNDP-IMO initiative that supports the uptake and implementation of energy efficiency measures for shipping, thereby reducing the industry’s greenhouse gas emissions. A key feature of the site is an information portal on energy efficiency technologies – covering areas such as machinery, propulsion and hull improvements, and energy recovery.
The portal builds on the work undertaken by IMO’s Marine Environment Protection Committee to promote technical cooperation and technology transfer relating to improving the energy efficiency of ships.
In addition to today’s website launch (4 August), the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) has joined the GloMEEP project as its third strategic partner, joining the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology (IMarEST), (find out morehere).
