IOGP input to the public consultation for the FuelEU Maritime – Green Maritime Space Initiative

This document provides IOGP’s input to the public consultation that invites citizens and organisations to contribute to the assessment of how to accelerate the uptake of sustainable alternative energy and power by the shipping sector.




The European Commission plans to adopt in 2020 the comprehensive “Strategy on Sustainable and Smart Mobility”. The Strategy will set out the key areas and initiatives in transport and mobility where the Commission will consider policy actions to be taken in the coming years and beyond.

The ‘FuelEU Maritime – Green European Maritime Space’ initiative will be an important element of the Strategy on sustainable and smart mobility, focusing on ramping-up the production, deployment and uptake of sustainable alternative marine fuels, ensuring technological neutrality, regulating access of the most polluting ships to EU ports and obliging docked ships to drastically reduce their emissions, including through using shore-side electricity.
