USP researchers are the lead authors of a major International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) technology review, “Renewable Energy Options for Shipping”. The new report from the UN Agency for Renewable Energy summarises the current status of renewable energy solutions for shipping, along with barriers and opportunities for further deployment. It provides recommendations to policy makers on promoting realistic renewable energy solutions, which can support energy efficiency and reduced emissions in the important and growing shipping sector. It is the first global review for this sector and the first time IRENA has looked seriously at the energy demands for sea transport.
