Under Development

The proposed methodology is for project activities that involve using low-carbon alternative fuels (such as hydrogen produced through water electrolysis, green ammonia, e-LNG, e-LPG, e-diesel, and e-methanol) in shipping, as drop-in fuels in dedicated ships. Eligible project activities include ships fuel-switching to alternative fuels and not for battery electric ships or ships using other types of fuels. The proposed methodology applies to all ship types and ships on territorial or high seas.
