RFI: Establishing Green Shipping Corridors between the U.S. and the UK Responses – Due 9/29
Request For Information: Establishing Green Shipping Corridors between the U.S. and the UK
U.S. Department of Energy, with support by the U.S. Department of State
and the U.S. Department of Transportation, and the United Kingdom (UK) government’s Department for Transport
The United States envisions green shipping corridors as shipping routes between two or more ports that showcase zero- and near zero- emission lifecycle fuels and technologies with the ambition to achieve zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions no later than 2050. Today, around three percent of global GHG emissions come from international shipping, and the industry generally relies on the availability of and access to energy-intensive fuels and technologies to transport freight internationally over long distances. Green shipping corridors encourage early and rapid adoption of zero- and near zero- emission lifecycle fuels and technologies charting a course to full decarbonization.
and the U.S. Department of Transportation, and the United Kingdom (UK) government’s Department for Transport are releasing simultaneous, but separate, Development of Green Shipping Corridors between the United States and the United Kingdom Requests for Information (RFI) seeking to understand the issues related to the establishment of at least one green shipping corridor between the two countries. The purpose of this RFI is to solicit feedback from maritime stakeholders including ports, shippers, cargo owners, fuel producers, marine terminal operators, trade organizations, industry, academia, research laboratories, and government agencies to help lay the groundwork for the development of green shipping corridors and to achieve zero greenhouse gas emissions no later than 2050.
