Maritime accounts for approximately 90% of trade in the world today. The maritime transport is responsible for polluting the atmosphere and the forecast of new scenarios about the shipping emissions predicts an increase between 50% and 250% by 2050, depending on future economic and energy development. The Industry has taken steps to reduce its Air Pollution and Carbon footprint. IMO introduced several new regulations such as the Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP), Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI), & Energy Efficiency Operational Index (EEOI), while the MARPOL Convention new regulations have imposed strict emissions caps in emission control areas. Ship owners have reacted to fulfill these requirements meeting the future environmental requirements set for 2025. Maritime Energy Management Specification (MariEMS) is an industry-academia collaboration project funded by the EU under the Erasmus+ programme. The project started in October 2015 and the duration is 30 months. The purpose of this Partnership is the development of an energy management training strategy and specification, and the development and implementation of an online learning and assessment system for the proposed training programme so that current cadets, as well as existing seafarers, can up-skill themselves to the new regulatory requirements and good practice. The paper presentation includes the handouts of the proposed methodology for developing specification and training content for the programme for the ship energy management as well as a demonstration of the MariEMS online e-learning platform.
