We are independent and can cut through political or business bias to identify best, or most likely, solutions for operators, bunker suppliers, legislators, ports, and fuels manufacturers.

• We are experts in the full gamut of: policy, propulsion, fuels, emissions and environment.

• We can apply insights from work on policies for legislators such

as the IMO and EU, as well as strategic studies to help businesses start implementing marine decarbonisation at the lowest possible risk.

• We have partners in business, academia, NGOs and legislators giving us a broad and deep understanding.

• We have carried out numerous studies on fuels, ports, vessels and production, carrying out work in 20 ports across 13 countries.

• In-depth understanding of energy infrastructure, from ports to hydrogen generation.
