Certificate in Energy Efficiency in Shipping

Develop key knowledge on energy efficiency in shipping via design, operations and management

Commences: 11th April 2017

Already the world’s most energy and cost efficient means of transport, the shipping sector is at the forefront of sustainable transport, however continuing development is required to ensure it becomes the cleanest sector and develops in the most sustainable fashion in parallel with international regulations.

Alongside the regulatory demands, such as MARPOL, MRV and SEEMP, the commercial realities of energy-efficient shipping mean it is an area which must be explored in detail for all professionals in the industry.

Professionals in the shipping industry need the knowledge and tools to address energy and sustainability requirements, as it not only improves energy efficiency but in so doing, significantly reduces operating costs. This professional development course examines the key topics in this area, with a look at ship technology, retrofits, voyage optimisation etc, as well as the major regulatory approach underpinning the sector. 

This is a must study course as it navigates the current and upcoming regulations addressing sustainability in shipping, plus explores the raft of emerging technologies and techniques used to reduce emissions and increase energy efficiency in shipping.

  • Know the commercial benefits of energy efficiency and sustainability in shipping
  • Study the regulatory requirements surrounding energy and emissions
  • Understand the role ship design plays in energy efficiency
  • Explore the different methods used in ship energy management
  • Understand how ports can help the environment
  • Know how data management and monitoring can improve energy efficiency
