Maritime Transport: Going with the Wind - Exploring the potential of Wind Propulsion to contribute to the Green Deal


Organised with the support of the International Windship Association and its Europe-Atlantic hub coordinator, the association Wind Ship

Thursday 17 June – 15:00 to 16:30 CEST

Online via MS Teams

Please find HERE the recording of the meeting 

2021-2030 has been announced as the ‘Decade of Wind Propulsion’ by the International Windship Association and its 130+ members, as it is a critically important decade for the shipping industry to deliver on decarbonisation. This online event pulled together a group of leading experts in wind propulsion technology to outline a radical paradigm shift. This approach can drastically reduce carbon and other GHG emissions from shipping, using a set of technologies and approaches already available today.

The webinar provided an opportunity to present an up-to-date overview on the international wind propulsion developments and to highlight European policies in the field.

Opened by MEP Jan Christoph OETJEN, SEArica Vice-Chair in charge of Maritime Transport. With the participation of MEP Catherine CHABAUD, SEArica Vice-Chair in charge of Climate & Governance, MEP Deirdre CLUNE, SEArica Member and MEP Petros KOKKALIS, SEArica Vice-Chair in charge of Blue Economy, Maritime Industries and Ports.

What is an Intergroup?

The Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup is one of the 27 Intergroups that were approved on 11 December 2019 by the Conference of Presidents for the 9th legislature of the European Parliament. Intergroups can be formed by MEPs from any political group and any parliamentary committee with a view to holding informal exchanges of views on particular issues and promoting contact between MEPs and civil society.

The Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup brings together more than 100 MEPs from 7 different political groups and 23 Member States.

Intergroups are not Parliament bodies and therefore may not express Parliament's opinion.

Intergroups are subject to internal rules adopted by the Conference of Presidents on 16 December 1999 (last updated on 11 September 2014), which set out the conditions under which intergroups may be established at the beginning of each parliamentary term and their operating rules.
