The ship.energy podcast: contracts for difference
2 September 2021
Alex Clark, lead author of the recent report 'Zero-Emissions Shipping: Contracts-for-difference as incentives for the decarbonisation of international shipping', joined the ship.energy podcast team to discuss the feasibility of applying a policy instrument known as a ‘contract-for-difference’(CfD). This has been used successfully to drive down the costs of renewable energy generation technologies in the electricity sector.
Clark explains the origins of the report, its implications for the energy transition and how it could work to encourage ship operators and fuel suppliers to switch investment to low-emissions alternatives.
