Shipping companies approach
The central aim of shipping energy management is to reduce energy costs and GHG emissions without compromising the operational and technical aspects of ships operations in particular safety, availability and service life of the equipment and their reliable and ease of use. The regulatory framework for shipping energy efficiency for new ships is to a large extent in place. For existing vessels, the SEEMP regulations are in place and work on “further operational measures” is underway and has progressed well so far. For existing vessels, there will be more regulations on data collection and reporting in the future. The SEEMP and CEnMS should work hand in hand to manage the overall processes.
