Quarter of Europe’s ships to run on LNG by 2030, finds T&E study

A quarter of Europe’s shipping will be fossil gas-powered by 2030 as EU sustainability targets encourage an uptake of LNG, a new Transport & Environment study shows. This will lock-in fossil fuel use for decades while bringing limited benefits to the climate, says T&E. Delphine Gozillon, sustainable shipping officer at T&E, said: “The old narrative...
