Shipping Research Group
Based at the UCL Energy Institute, the group consists of 15 researchers and PhD students involved in a number of ongoing projects, funded through a mixture of research grants and our consultancy vehicle UMAS. We undertake research both using models of the shipping system (GloTraM), shipping big data (including satellite Automatic Identification System data) and qualitative and social science analysis of the policy and commercial structure of the shipping system. Our research activity is centred on understanding patterns of energy demand in shipping and how this knowledge can be applied to help shipping transition to a low carbon future. The shipping research team at UCL Energy Institute comprises a diverse team of individuals and we are the largest university-based research group focussing on GHG and energy matters related to shipping. Alongside the IMO 3rd GHG, the team has been involved, over the last 5 years, in ~£12m of shipping research programmes (leading the majority of the work), which has built a strong team with a multidisciplinary background, including economics, engineering, finance, statistics and programming. Through this expertise, we have developed a deep understanding of the shipping industry, and broad-ranging stakeholder connections. Our mission is to accelerate the transition to an equitable, globally sustainable energy system through world-class shipping research, education and policy support. The shipping research group is world-leading in two key areas: using big data to understand trends and drivers of shipping energy demand or emissions, and using models to explore 'what-ifs' for future markets and policies.
