GLOBAL MARKET
 
Global Market Opportunity
The market for below 5000dwt vessels is growing, expanding to meet demand stimulated by increased global trade.  An estimated (by brokers, Clarksons) 1400 newbuilds in this category will be required in 2020.
 
B9 Shipping working alongside the UCL low carbon shipping systems analysis team is quantifying the long term financial advantages of deploying predictably priced renewable fuels - wind and bio-gas - on small merchant vessels.
 
Examples of B9 Ships’ potential markets
B9 Ships are simply deploying an evolutionary propulsion system. They are not limited in what cargoes they can carry any more than a similarly sized vessel using fossil fuel is. However, it makes sense for renewably powered ships to focus on carrying renewable fuels.
 
To move renewable fuels in oil powered ships diminishes the overall sustainability performance and compromises maximum incentive opportunities.

Supply chain - renewable energy 1. - dry bulk
The IEA predicts UK alone will import 45mtpa biomass feedstock to support the UK biomass heat and energy generation sector. Doing so in conventional ships denigrates the environmental performance of potentially carbon neutral heat and power generation. Renewable shipping solves the problem. 

Supply chain - renewable energy 2. bio-fuel tankers
B9 Ships can also realistically carry chemicals, fuels and other liquids.
 
People
B9 Shipping is in discussions with a US cruise line to build a passenger vessel.
 
Small islands
B9 pledged its technology to developing nations at COP15. Small islands are excluded from world trade as conventional ships are expensive, too large and an environmental risk to eco-systems. Appropriate small scale B9 Ships are a developmental stimulus for small island states. And, to close the environmental loop, can be used to import, affordably, renewable energy supplies to power the national grid and so offer stability and resilience to nations most at risk from climate change.
