  • 8. SOME LESSONS LEARNED • Significant price gap LNG – Diesel essential for sustainable business case • Extremely high prices for LNG equipment (> 30-50% above estimated budgets) • High logistics costs (10-15€/MWh on top of TTF c. 20€/MWh) • Transparent and competitive pricing requested • Despite proven “technologies” still many technical challenges (vessels) • New air emission targets must be achieved by gas engines without exhaust after treatment in order not to kill LNG in IWT before it has started • Permits for on-shore infrastructure critical (NIMBY, realization time) • Public/Politicians/Authorities tend to overestimate safety risks of LNG – more information needed • Multi-client strategy (maritime & road sector, off-road, peak shavers, off-pipeline clients, etc) for deployment of LNG hubs required • Public co-funding essential to ensure business case TEN-T DAYS RIGA 2015 8
  • 9. AS PART OF WIDER STRATEGY WE NEED…. • LNG Technology Platform for IWT/Horizon 2020-Call 2016 for targeted innovation to reduce TOC & further improve environmental performance addressing: • Engine technologies, tank & fuelling systems, (e.g. standardised solutions for retrofitting) • Modular logistics systems, intermodal logistics chains • Increased public awareness and improved governance • Combined CEF Energy & Transport Call 2016 to cover infrastructure investment along LNG value chain • Viable business cases by combining LNG as energy resource & LNG as transport fuel • Enabling investment in liquefaction of bio-methane/stranded gas resources • Particularly important for Danube region to kick off investment • New financing instruments to overcome structural weakness of inland shipping sector • European Fund for vessel modernization (e.g. EFSI backing) • National State Aid Schemes (with access to ERDF/Cohesion Fund) • Strong commitment of municipalities/regions/public authorities • Ensure smooth admission/permitting process/administrative efficiency in deployment • Integrate public transport & public utility operators as pioneer consumers TEN-T DAYS RIGA 2015 9
  • 10. CONCLUSIONS • LNG is the most promising alternative fuel for inland navigation offering high environmental and economic benefits • Use of LNG supports major EU transport, environment and energy policy objectives • Bio-LNG will improve CO2 performance significantly • Best possible bridge for a strongly decarbonised inland shipping (e.g. fuel cell) • Inland vessels can deliver high volumes of LNG cost-effectively from seaside import terminals to economic heartlands of Europe • Barging sector, therefore, is pioneer consumer of LNG and enabler of LNG supply supporting a more diversified European energy supply • Rhine/Meuse-Main-Danube axis will serve as European main LNG artery • LNG Masterplan prepares sector for successful follow-up EU projects, but: • Implementation of comprehensive strategy and favourable framework conditions (market & policy) are needed for wide-scale deployment • LNG is not a self-running case nor the solution to all evil in inland shipping TEN-T DAYS RIGA 2015 10
