TECHNICAL PAPER

Techno-economic assessment of low-carbon hydrogen technologies for the decarbonisation of shipping

The following publication contains a techno-economic analysis of various pathways for the decarbonisation of global shipping. The analysis is made on the basis of the total cost of ownership comparison and covers all sea-going vessels – from ships used exclusively for short sea application, e.g., ferries, ro-ro ships, general cargo ships and small containerships, through cruise ships and up to ships used mostly on intercontinental voyages, e.g., VLCCs, VLBCs and large containerships.

The following publication contains a techno-economic analysis of various pathways for the decarbonisation of global shipping. The analysis is made on the basis of the total cost of ownership comparison and covers all sea-going vessels – from ships used exclusively for short sea application, e.g., ferries, ro-ro ships, general cargo ships and small containerships, through cruise ships and up to ships used mostly on intercontinental voyages, e.g., VLCCs, VLBCs and large containerships. The paper was developed as part of the preparation of the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) of the foreseen Clean Hydrogen for Europe partnership (CHE). CHE is the third EU public-private partnership dedicated to the development of clean hydrogen technologies and a successor to the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking (FCH2JU).

The purpose of this analysis was to assess the long-term viability of various hydrogen-based solutions for the full decarbonization of shipping and use the results of this assessment as guidance in defining the research and innovation priorities of CHE for the 2021-2027 period. More specifically, the goal was to see what role can hydrogen technologies and hydrogen itself play in reducing the greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint of international shipping, which solutions work best for which ship types and applications and what are the techno-economic barriers for wide adoption of hydrogen as a marine fuel. Given the stated purpose, the analysis has a forward-looking outlook, not only assessing options based on their current technology readiness level but also taking into account their expected development over the coming years. Consequently, the results of this report should not be seen as a recommendation of the best available solutions today but rather as a projection of the long-term viability of different hydrogen-based options.
