NavigaTE well-to-wake Position Paper

Published — March 29, 2022

The NavigaTE model utilizes a Well-to-Wake approach to assess the climate impacts of fuel pathways.

Well-to-Wake (WTW) evaluations form the basis for assessing climate impacts associated with greenhouse gases emissions in the maritime industry. The NavigaTE model, aims to harness the insights from such evaluations and provide an end-to-end analysis of marine fuel value chains. NavigaTE version 1.0 contains a framework for WTW evaluations with placeholders for further input and development. Emissions data has been collected from primary and secondary sources for energy intensive processes and implemented in the model. Fuel production in the model is assumed to be off grid with their own energy supply.
