Reducing Greenhouse Gases in the Maritime Sector

Approaches for Decarbonizing the U.S. Fleet

The United States has committed to eliminating all greenhouse gas emissions in the transportation sector by 2050. The new report from Ocean Conservancy and Energy and Environmental Research Associates, Reducing Greenhouse Gases in the Maritime Sector: Approaches to Decarbonizing the U.S. Fleet, explores the challenges and opportunities for decarbonizing the U.S. flagged fleet and a segment of the federal fleet and provides a comprehensive analysis of technical and policy approaches to achieve emissions reductions. By investing in infrastructure supporting zero-carbon fueling and electrification, the United States has the potential to be a leader in shipping decarbonization, setting an example for other countries to follow suit. This report builds on an earlier analysis of The Maritime Fleet of the USA.
