Abstract

International Maritime Organization(IMO) has adopted the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) in 1.January.2013 for all new ships above 400 GT, in order to set technical practices to ensure ship energy efficiency management. With this move IMO stipulated global ship fleet to become more efficient and less CO2 emitting by meeting the requirements of EEDI measures, through three phases until 2050. In this context, this study has analyzed the potential of EEDI and CO2 reduction for 405 Turkish Flagged (TF) Ships to understand the current and prospective state of energy efficiency level of Turkish Fleet up to 2025.
