The participation of private sector and industry in GloMEEP is foreseen to be achieved via setting up of a GIA to catalyse maritime sector energy efficiency innovation and technology deployment via:

GIA Fund: Contributions / donations by industry towards the technological developments and deployments for shipping energy efficiency.

Global forums: To highlight best practices and R&D on maritime energy efficiency, technologies for ship technology upgrade, case studies and guidelines.

Other activities: These will be decided by the GIA itself after its formation.

• Take ownership and leadership in all relevant related decision making and actual implementation of activities.

• Identify barriers to deployment of both ship management and technology upgrades; with emphasis on existing ships in developing nations

• Define collaborative models that would remove barriers to energy efficiency for existing ships in particular in developing countries.

• Form alliances with IMO and LPCs to promote energy efficiency technologies for ships’ technical upgrades.

• Support the GloMEEP project via a combination of cash and in-kind input.
