Climate Change Symposium Technical Program

Wednesday, February 03, 2010

SNAME President Keith Michel and Malcolm MacKinnon III, Chairman of the Marine Board, released the Notice of Meeting and Technical Program Schedule for the symposium on Climate Change. Climate Change and Ships, Increasing Energy Efficiency Symposium will be held February 16 and 17 at the Maritime Institute of Technology and Graduate Studies (MITAGS) in Linthicum, Md.
 
The symposium is organized around three themes: (1) the Energy Efficiency Design Index for new ships now under development at the IMO, (2) the cost effectiveness of market-based mechanisms applied to shipping, and, (3) technical and operational measures to increase energy efficiency on ships. Each session will consist of a series of technical presentations followed by a panel discussion with audience participation. The final session of the meeting will involve breakout sessions to identify future research needs. The symposium Proceedings consisting of all papers and summaries of the breakout session discussions will be mailed to all attendees following the meeting.

SNAME is committed to providing technical information to agencies and organizations involved in the development of greenhouse gas (GHG) regulations for the maritime industries, to help ensure that these regulations have a sound technical basis. SNAME has recently established three T&R Ad Hoc Panels on GHG issues. Early research efforts have resulted in the submittal of two documents for consideration at the IMO MEPC60 meeting in March. This workshop is part of this ongoing commitment to foster research and disseminate technical information on the subject of climate change as it relates to the maritime and offshore industries.

The Symposium is hosted jointly by SNAME and the Marine Board (of the National Academies). Co-sponsors: American Bureau of Shipping, Herbert Engineering Corp., and the International Council on Clean Transportation.
