The start of this decade has been challenging for all of us. However, the need for collaboration on green maritime innovation has just grown in importance. We look forward to gathering our ambitious cluster partners at our annual conference on December 1-2! See the full conference agenda here.

At the conference, you will meet internationally leading representatives from industry, finance, and politics. And last, but not least, we will announce the winner of our annual award: “Partner of the year 2022”.

As always, key players from the maritime industry will present, debate, provoke and inform our cluster participants on current and important issues. The headline is “Chasing Zero!”, reflecting the extensive innovation work needed to find future solutions for cleaner maritime activities.


Major stakeholders confirmed

Responsible for the German government’s green maritime policy, Claudia Müller, will open the conference. Together with Specialist Director of the Norwegian Ministry of Climate and Environment and IMO representative, Sveinung Oftedal, Müller will give us an update on both Germany’s and IMOs green maritime ambitions.


Going green during a global crisis

2022 has delivered some unexpected news globally, and this is the subject of the second session of day 1 – How can we eliminate emissions during a global crisis? We’ve challenged stakeholders, innovators, politicians, and an economist to give us the answers.

We look forward to listening to former head of the Norwegian Intelligence Service, Morten Haga Lunde’s, analysis on how the current war is affecting the global green maritime shift. In addition, leading Members of Parliament will discuss how this is handled on a national level.

During our shipowner’s hour, we’re excited to hearing how Høegh Autoliners and Torvald Klaveness are chasing zero, before the CEO of Grieg Maritime Group, Matthew Duke shares the company’s plans for decarbonizing the deep-sea segment.

Day 2 delivers on the technology side, where you’ll hear frontrunners discuss innovations and challenges in sessions on ammonia, fuel cells, batteries, and energy efficiency!
