The ambition for transition to a net zero economy creates unique challenges and opportunities that vary across the UK. The Shetland Islands, with their unique maritime ecosystem, face implications and requirements for significant investments required to reach net zero status. These demand careful planning and prioritisation of the stages for the net zero transition. Financial, environmental, technical and human resources should be considered to create optimal, feasible, sustainable plans in the framework of circular economy.
The NEPTUNE Project examined the feasibility of developing a decision support tool to facilitate informed choice of optimal low/zero emission solution for each of the varied sizes and types of vessels around the island and consideration of the supporting infrastructure required to locally generate and supply the selected low/zero emission fuel systems to these marine users.
Join the NEPTUNE team during a webinar where they will share the results of their study and link these results with other initiatives around Shetland and nationally. The agenda and registration are found below.
