Green Maritime Industry

Holistic Approach - Energy Improvement

Welcome to NAVGREEN. This program aims to improve the maritime industry’s environmental impact. The program will focus on several key areas: developing alternatives to traditional fuels, improving energy efficiency in ships and ports, using new digital technologies to better manage operations, and encouraging recycling and the use of biofuels. Through this program, we aim to make shipping more sustainable and efficient.


Holistic approach for optimizing "Green Shipping", with alternative solutions for various maritime activities.

Development of solutions for alternative fuels, production, storage, and energy management.

Energy upgrading of ships and ports with design, technological, and operational solutions.

Implementation of digitalization technologies and management of ship and port operations.

Promotion of circular economy and energy recovery, through green recycling and biofuel production.

Evaluation of solution efficiency and finding the ideal combination for each case.

Development of a decision support tool that includes investments.

Compilation of a roadmap of actions for promoting shipping towards decarbonization and offering solutions to researchers, shipping companies, ship inspectors, ports, ship and equipment manufacturers.

work packages


Work Package 1

Recognition of the sectors of maritime activity, their distinct features, and which of these are related to green shipping or can be influenced by it.


Work Package 2

Clean alternative fuels, alternative energy sources, as well as technologies for reducing the environmental footprint of transitional alternative fuels are examined.


Work Package 3

The energy upgrading and efficiency of ships and ports are examined, along with issues pertaining to the design of green vessels with a focus on energy saving.


Work Package 4

Different technologies for reducing the environmental footprint are examined and the impacts of climate-related pollutants on the environment are evaluated.


Work Package 5

The management of large-scale monitoring data in remote and/or autonomous navigation, and in maritime traffic management is examined.


Work Package 6

Biofuels as recycling products, the synergy of ships-ports, maritime activities, and the life cycle of technologies and fuels are examined.


Work Package 7

A map of optimal combinations is generated based on the separate analysis of technologies and solutions, as well as alternative fuels.


Work Package 8

Two case studies are developed, i) for ocean-going vessels and ii) for ships of the Greek coastal shipping for connecting the mainland with the islands.
