Event Information


Newcastle United Football Club

The Shipping in Changing Climates project will be holding it’s annual conference on the 10th and 11th November this year in Newcastle and invites papers and presentations from academics, policy makers and industry. Whilst the conference is focused on the shipping industry, it also welcomes contributions from other transport sectors on related topics, including:

• Strategies to mitigate climate change

• Technologies for energy efficiency

• Alternative fuels

• Design of environmentally friendly ships

• Performance verification, monitoring and management

• Optimisation of logistics

• Policies, regulations and strategies for sustainable shipping

• Measuring and mapping shipping emissions

Since 2011, the international conference has been organised annually to bring together experts from academia, industry and policy makers to present developments, share experience and develop joint actions to help shipping transition towards a low carbon and sustainable future. The successful Low Carbon shipping conferences in 2011, 2012 and 2013 were continued in 2014 and 2015 as Shipping in Changing Climates. For more information on the project, past conferences and outputs to date visit the Low Carbon Shipping & Shipping in Changing Climates webiste.     

Registration for the SCC 2016 conference is now open

The deadline for submissions of abstracts is 30th September 2016.

About Shipping in Changing Climates

The £4m Shipping in Changing Climates project is led by UCL and uses a whole systems approach to understand the scope for greater energy efficiency of the supply side, understand the demand side drivers and their interaction and potential future evolution of shipping. The consortium consists of five UK universities and industry partners Lloyds Register, Rolls Royce, Shell, BMT and MSI and is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Energy Programme. The project aims to develop new knowledge and understanding on the subject of the shipping system, its energy efficiency and emissions, and its transition to a low carbon, more resilient future.
