It’s been a year since the first "Designing the sip of the future.." – now for the 8th episode we will consider:

- Where are we now?
- What has changed? What has happened in the year that has passed – has shipping made progress?
- Is one of the main problems that shipping, as a vital industry, is losing control of the agenda?
- And, what about the image of the industry – is a more positive image going to a key factor in controlling our destiny and enabling us to build the ships of the future?
- Who has a clear view of the design of the ship of the future? (low emissions, greater efficiency, speed, digitalization, materials, engines, etc..)
- Who will design the ship of the future?
- What insights do we have into the commercial viability of future ship designs?
- Who will take the investment risk on these technologies? What is the role of the capital provider and charterer?
- Is LNG just a transition fuel? Hydrogen, ammonia, batteries, and nuclear?
- Is there enough infrastructure in ports worldwide to facilitate new fuels?
- Will we have new trades, requiring new ship types – e.g. hydrogen carriers and ammonia product tankers? Agenda for action - next steps. What can we do now to help accelerate the availability of zero-carbon ships while at the same time reducing shipping’s footprint: slow steaming, retrofits, ESG reporting, and verificatio
