This response is submitted by the following organisations:
- UCL Energy Institute hosts a world-leading research group focused on the decarbonisation of the shipping sector. The shipping research group undertakes research to support the decarbonisation of shipping using models of the shipping system, shipping big data, and social science analysis of the policy and commercial structure of the shipping system. The research group’s multi-disciplinary work is underpinned by state-of-the-art data supported by rigorous models and research practices, which makes it have a cutting edge on three key areas; using big data to understand drivers of shipping emissions, using models to explore shipping’s transition to a zero emissions future and providing interpretation to key decision makers in the policy and industry stakeholder space.
- UCL Energy Institute also leads the Decarbonising UK Freight Transport (DUKFT) which is a network of over forty industry and academic partners funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. The Network prioritises research which can enable the energy/propulsion switch across the road, rail, sea and air freight modes by unleashing significant freight-decarbonisation targeted investment and guide enabling policy. Some of the research presented in this response has also been funded by the Centre for Research into Energy Demand Solutions (CREDS).
- UMAS is a sector focused, commercial advisory service that draws upon the world leading expertise of the UCL Energy Institute shipping research group combined with the advisory and management system expertise of UMAS International Ltd. UMAS delivers consultancy services for a wide range of clients in the public and private sectors, including the Department for Transport, UN International Maritime Organisation, Lloyds Register and Global Maritime Forum.
