      • Discover the content of the session: "Wind Propulsion: Blending regional initiatives, national developments, and international networks for sustainable shipping"

      • Reemergence of wind propulsion as a major technology development in 21st shipping / workshop for a concrete shared pathway with India. Wind propulsion has a significant air and noise pollution reduction impact, carbon and other associated toxic emissions, noise from cavitation and machinery onboard. There are three key trends developing within the sector:

        > Tweaking: The retrofitting of existing vessels with wind propulsion systems to reduce fuel use up to 30% and to extend the carbon budget available to shipping.
        > Transition: Natural replacement with wind optimised wind-assist & primary wind vessels + operation adjustments to maximise the wind energy component.
        > Transformation: Accelerated replacement of existing vessels with primary wind vessels and the uptake 100% energy autonomous wind vessels and even ‘carbon positive’ vessels that are generating significant alternative fuel available for shore based usage.

        These trends are at different stages of development; however they hold various levels of promise across numerous SDG objectives especially in the smaller vessel segments with the return of fuel costs into local economies, the opportunities to revitalise smaller ports, reduce pressure on fisheries and revitalise local shipping services and employment.

        Blending regional ecosystems, national development and international networks has the potential to fuel wind propulsion takeoff and to help building a really decarbonised shipping. This is the vision we are trying to put into action with the International Windship Association, the French Wind Ship Association, Bretagne Developpement Innovation and the "Région Bretagne". Local communities of industrial groups, start-ups, ports, local government, academics and civil society driven by IWSA, IWSA hub, and BDI are part of a French, European and global network of wind propulsion ecosystems of innovators and enablers.
        This is leading to a reemergence of wind propulsion as a major technology development in 21st shipping that should be shared worlwide: the Sea Tech Week session is a concrete workshop to creating a pathway with India and beyond.

        The session will be organised of plenary sessions, workshops and feebacks to create a Country & Regional Map for Shipping in India fit for a decarbonised shipping world with wind propulsion at the heart of the decarbonisation pathway. Creates impact analysis of changes to shipping at local, regional and international level.
