Carlo is a Consultant in the Lloyd’s Register Maritime Decarbonisation Hub, and he is promoting sustainability and decarbonisation with the ambition to address the market challenges that enable the energy transition in the maritime sector.
Carlo holds a PhD from the University College London on the potential of hydrogen as a fuel for shipping. In 2016, his research was one of the first to suggest the use of hydrogen-based fuels to decarbonise the shipping industry. His work was used to set the goal of a 50% reduction in GHG from shipping by 2050 and suggested that to achieve this, zero-emission vessels would need to be in use by 2030.
He developed models that for the first time assessed the Total Cost of Operation of zero-emissions vessels, and assessed the costs for the production of alternative marine fuels. In 2021, Carlo developed the First Mover Framework that led to the creation of a wide coalition for a green corridor cluster in Singapore, the Silk Alliance.
