Hydrogen and Fuel Cells in Ports and Shipping

In partnership with:

The maritime freight industry has become a major focus for the move towards zero emissions since the International Maritime Organization set a goal of lowering emissions from the shipping sector by 50% from 2008 levels by 2050. Stakeholders from cargo handling equipment manufacturers and marine terminal operators, to shipbuilders and shipowners, are now considering hydrogen fuel cells as a pathway to zero emissions. However, as new hydrogen fuel cell technologies are developed and tested, manufacturers will need to work with operators to address logistical, operational, maintenance, and safety concerns to ensure a smooth transition away from petroleum-based fuel and internal combustion engines.

Watch this recorded webinar to gain insight into:

  • Findings from the CHBC’s recently released Hydrogen and Fuel Cells in Ports and Shipping Workshop Report
  • The opportunities and challenges for hydrogen and fuel cells within the ports and shipping sectors
  • The state of hydrogen fuel cell demonstration projects in shipping around the globe today and on the horizon

In Collaboration With:





The California Hydrogen Business Council (CHBC) is comprised of over 100 companies, agencies and individuals involved in the business of hydrogen. The mission is to advance the commercialization of hydrogen in the energy sector, including transportation, goods movement, and stationary power systems to reduce emissions and dependence on oil.
