The Impact of Decarbonization on Shipping Finance

, “Ships are carbon-intensive assets designed with a life span of up to 30 years. A newbuild financed today will likely need to operate under a carbon price before its first five-year drydock, when modifications can be made. Yet today most lenders are making decisions without even factoring energy efficiency into lending decisions. By the end of its life span in 2050, that vessel could need to operate close to 90 percent more efficiently than when it was first delivered. We are working to ensure that the expertise of ship financiers is fully leveraged to enable and even accelerate the profitable

Wisconsin Energy to Buy Integrys

;More than 99 percent of the combined company's earnings will come from regulated businesses," said Wisconsin Energy Chief Executive Gale Klappa, who will lead the combined company. Prices on both the open and regulated markets have fallen, due to an abundance of cheap shale gas, increased energy efficiency and tepid economic growth. Integrys also said it was in the late stages of a process to divest its non-regulated marketing unit, Integrys Energy Services, but would keep its solar generation business.
