CONFERENCE 2018 logically can move towards a greener and more energy efficient future for the shipping sector and further how we can utilize the new business potentials offered by the sea. A GREENER AND MORE ENERGY EFFICIENT FUTURE FOR THE SHIPPING SECTOR Shipping is already the most environmentally and climate friendly means of transport when it comes to transportation of large amounts of goods. However, there is still a lot to catch up with, and with a growing global population, increased prosperity and thus increased worldwide trade there is a great demand for implementation of solutions which can make shipping even greener. BLUE GROWTH AND BLUE OCEAN ECONOMY The ocean is a driving force not least for the European economy and still makes out a vast

untapped potential for innovation and growth. In Europe, the ”blue” economy represents approx. 5.4 mill. workplaces and generates an annual gross profit of nearly 500 billion Euro. However, further growth is possible in various fields and within the framework of the EU a large-scale and ambitious strategy for better utilization of the potentials of the sea has been launched. For the maritime industry an interesting question in this connection will be which kinds of existing technologies can be extended to other branches of the blue economy.
