Even though the Naval sector is typically not subject to GHG-related regulatory restrictions, some countries have started looking into the possibility of working towards becoming operating a zero-carbon Navy by considering the use of alternative fuels. To provide a solid decision support for newbuilds and vessels in operation, DNV published a white paper which is based on a wide range of public-domain information sources as well as a survey conducted among 130 stakeholders from 12 countries to ascertain current trends and expectations.

The paper summarizes recent technology developments; discusses current and emerging fuel choices including their pros and cons, as well as their technical and military implications; looks at other carbon abatement and efficiency enhancing measures; and analyses the current navel fleets and their respective uptake of alternative fuels.
