Title: XII.e International shipping Costs

Content: h1 Costs summary

h2 Technology costs

Click here for International Shipping cost data

h1 Costs Methodology

h2 Methodology used

The user decides which trajectory is used which defines the levels of the technologies.

We only have point estimates for the incremental costs for international shipping from the results of a study, commissioned by the Department for Transport, which estimated the potential for different technical and operational measures to reduce the UK’s CO2 emissions from shipping, and the cost-effectiveness of these measures[AMEC Environment & Infrastructure UK Limited (2011) Costs and Benefits of Abatement Options for Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Ships Arriving at and Departing from Ports in the UK]. We have used these as our "default" costs.

An important caveat to the international shipping costs are:

* Users should be aware that whereas the Calculator includes total costs for all other technologies, for international shipping we only have incremental costs.
* Therefore when looking at total costs of pathways in the web tool, be aware that this will be a slight underestimate because it will not reflect the full international shipping costs.
* However, note that this omission of costs ceases to be a problem if users look at the incremental cost of one pathway over and above any pathway in which international shipping is set at level 1; in this instance, it will be a true reflection of incremental costs.

h1 Questions to Stakeholders

1) Are today’s international shipping technology costs accurately reflected?

2) Are any of the technology costs out of date, do you have any new estimates to add?

3) The model uses high and low input cost assumptions. What is the evidence that these remain constant, rise or fall over time for the shipping sector?

Title: XII.e International shipping Costs

Content: * NOTE*

The 2050 Calculator includes all emissions which count towards the UK’s 2050 target.  The only exception is international aviation and shipping: the Government has yet to decide whether this will contribute towards the UK’s 2050 target; however for illustrative purposes this sector has been included in the Calculator in the meantime.
