The true success of energy transition requires a drastic step towards energy sobriety. Direct use of environmental forces, such as wind, sun or waves will guarantee true sustainability of our future shipping and transport activities.
Zero emission power solutions are on the rise in all sectors and require new type of expertise and technologies. Sharing such expertise is key at this very moment of the transition, as we are all about to make important choices to create a sustainable future.
Renewable energy can be found in many ways across our oceans. True sustainable alternative energy carriers are at reach. Their production and storage can benefit from past experience in offshore activities. However, different approaches and expertises are also needed to respect and possibly repair our environment.
Human activities at sea requires a drastic change in our relation to the ocean. From today we must guarantee the sustainability of our activities: fishing, farming, biomass production or life conservation and protection. Much is possible if we are successful in taking part in the symbiosis of this delicate eco-system.
Dare to set ambitious goals, apply novel techniques to produce renewable ocean energy, rethink transport & shipping to reduce drastically energy use, set sails on all ships, develop and choose zero emission power technologies, protect and cherish the environment, while using all available past experience and knowledge from the energy sector: this is how we want to create, together, a sustainable future for Oceans, Energy and Shipping.
Venezia faces tough challenges due to its geographical location and vulnerability to rising sea levels. Concerns over climate change raised awareness and a sense of urgency from its inhabitants, and in line with this, Venice aims to be at the forefront of sustainable development. Key issues being addressed include protecting the Lagoon to preserve its fragile ecosystem, sustainable mobility, renewable energy production and local storage and sustainable tourism.
The city and the lagoon also have a large water transport network, with more than 180 ships transporting goods and passengers. All in all, the iconic city of Venezia will be a perfect and inspiring location to present, share and discuss sustainable developments and innovation. We are very thankful to ACTV (Venetian Public Transportation company) and VELA for hosting our special event at the Arsenale.
If you want to contribute with a presentation in one of the seminar, organise a JIP or European project meeting or working group members meeting, contact us to discuss the possibilities.

The maritime industry will come together again in 2021, with the FPSO JIP Week and the BlueWeek set to be held between May 31-June 4. All activities will be live streamed to reach out to you wherever you are on our blue planet. The seminars and the Forum on Wednesday will be open to the public, (following registration), while JIP meetings will be open to members only.
We need actions today if we are to build a strong foundation for the future. Taking decisions with long-term consequences and making choices in the short-term are not easy. So sharing experience and knowledge is the best possible way forward. By organising such an event, we want to help the maritime sector gain confidence, mitigate doubts, be inspired, innovative, dare to try, fail and try again, think, rethink, design and engineer operations with alternative sustainable solutions.
Please join us – virtually or in person – between May 31-June 4 to power the future with fresh ideas!
Our team members have a strong technological background and work daily on projects, research and innovation for the maritime sector. Their involvement in the BlueWeek is motivated by a wish to share knowledge and create synergies between people seeking sustainable alternative solutions in the maritime sector. If you wish to contribute to our seminars, do not hesitate to contact them! If you want to host a BlueWeek, please contact the chairman of the Blue Forum.
