heal.abstract In recent years, there has been a global increase in efforts to regulate emissions from ships, with the aim of promoting cleaner and more sustainable shipping transportation. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has recently introduced new regulations with the aim of reducing emissions per transport work. One of these regulations is the Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII). The CII is a metric used to calculate the annual CO2 emissions per deadweight of carrying capacity and nautical mile traveled by a ship. The aim of this thesis is to investigate the impact of the CII regulation on the existing fleet and its contribution to the decarbonization of international shipping. The study focuses on approximately 8600 vessels and utilizes data provided by the EU MRV (Monitoring, Reporting, and Verification) system for the year 2021. One of the primary objectives of this study is to identify and analyze the challenges faced by vessels in maintaining compliance with the Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) from 2023 to 2030. Factors such as ship type, age, size, and ice class will be considered in this analysis. Given the uncertainties surrounding the regulation's form after 2026, the compliance of vessels until 2030 is examined by developing two decarbonization trajectory scenarios. Furthermore, the study aims to explore the potential correlation between design energy efficiency (measured by EEDI, EEXI, and EIV) and operational energy efficiency (measured by CII). Additionally, the impact of operational decisions is being investigated by comparing the CII ratings of sister vessels with similar design characteristics but different trade profiles. Another objective of this study is to assess the potential reduction in CO2 emissions resulting from the implementation of the CII regulation by 2030. This is a significant year target for IMO to reduce maritime carbon intensity by 40%, compared to 2008 levels. The proposed methodology estimates the potential amount of CO2 emissions reduction to be achieved by 2030, under the assumption that all vessels should be rated A, B or C until that year. The analysis also indicates which ship types will need the greatest CO2 emission reductions to ensure compliance. Lastly, focusing on Tankers, Bulk Carriers and Containerships this study investigates how implementing different combinations of operational and technical energy efficiency solutions across various cost ranges will impact the compliance rates of each ship type in 2030. en
