Understanding the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) and Energy Efficiency Operational Indicator (EEOI)

The Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) is an operational measure that establishes a mechanism to improve the energy efficiency of a ship in a cost-effective manner. The SEEMP also provides an approach for shipping companies to manage ship and fleet efficiency performance over time using metrics such as the Energy Efficiency Operational Indicator (EEOI)Continue reading “Understanding the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP) and Energy Efficiency Operational Indicator (EEOI)”

What is the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI)?

The EEDI for new ships is the most important technical measure and aims to promote the use of more energy efficient (less polluting) equipment and engines. The EEDI requires a minimum energy efficiency level per capacity mile depending on ship type and size segments.  Since 1 January 2013, following an initial two-year phase zero, new ship designs have neededContinue reading “What is the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI)?”
