First article on its way to Santiago

The first article written as part of this project, titled “The Energy-Efficiency Gap in Shipping: Barriers to Improvement”, has just been finished, and will be presented at IAME2011, a conference arranged by the International Association of Maritime Economists in Santiago, Chile, in October this year.

I also gave a talk on this topic last week, at the latest Lighthouse Ecoship seminar. In other sectors, a discussion on what obstacles or barriers hinder the diffusion of energy efficiency measures has been active since the oil crisises of the 70s. In the talk, I put this discussion in a shipping context.
