Marginal abatement costs and cost-effectiveness of energy-efficiency measures
This information document provides the report of a study on the economics and cost-effectiveness of technical and operational measures to reduce CO2 emissions from ships. The methodologies and analyses are structured to support the development and implementation of any regulatory and/or corporate policies that may be adopted. The results may be used by ship designers, builders, owners and operators as a tool in their decision-making on whether to employ one or more technologies or operational measures. The methodology and inputs are structured such that each can be varied should new information be incorporated or to posit and test different views on any of the assumptions.
