Energy Transition

Understand the impact on maritime

As pressures build globally to find solutions to moderate climate change, the energy transition will cause fundamental changes to shipping, trade, Offshore and energy. We are committed to providing data and intelligence to help frame the critical decisions that stakeholders across our industry will need to make to facilitate the decarbonisation of the maritime sector. Firstly, our modelling and insights provide a framework for understanding how the energy transition may impact on seaborne energy trade and Offshore energy production. 

Secondly, through our World Fleet Register and fuelling transition work, we help our clients understand complex regulations and policies, track alternative fuel uptake, energy saving technologies and emissions across the world fleet. We also analyse the impact of environmental policy, regulation and technology on market supply / demand and fleet renewal requirements.

And thirdly, our Renewables Intelligence Network provides leading data, intelligence and analysis around Offshore Renewables, including the fast-growing Offshore wind sector and global coverage of all farms, turbines, vessels, contractors and developers involved in this exciting industry. Clarksons has also established a dedicated Green Transition team to work with our Broking and Finance teams to develop and execute decarbonisation strategies for our clients.
