Fuels for the climate: Is natural gas the solution to decarbonise shipping?

COP27 European Union side event If shipping were a country, it would be the sixth largest emitter. To decrease the shipping industry’s reliance on heavily polluting fuels, some shipping companies have invested in liquified natural gas (LNG), a greenhouse gas that has questionable benefits for the climate. This online event will explore the impact that […]

Accelerating Battery-Electric Vehicles: Indonesia National Workshop
