Göteborg: Sustainable shipping through improved energy efficiency – why and how

13 juni, 2018 @ 9:30 f m - 4:00 e m

How can energy efficiency contribute to a stronger and more sustainable shipping sector? What are the business models and how do the shipping companies work with energy efficiency? What happens in the research front and how do Swedish authorities view the future?

Registration is closed, last minute seats available. Please contact info@lighthouse.nu


Book June 13th in your calendar when Lighthouse invite you to a seminar on energy efficiency in shipping.
