Blank Rome Maritime is proud to be a Bronze Level sponsor of the Connecticut Maritime Association’s (“CMA”) 2022 CMA Shipping Expo & Conference, which will be held March 29 through 31, 2022, in Stamford, Connecticut.

The three-day conference includes insights from shipping professionals in a powerful conference agenda; the Commodore Gala Dinner; exceptional networking; and a free-to-attend exhibition with over 80 booths. This year’s key topics will include State of the Industry, Decarbonization & Alternative Energy, Freight Markets, Digitalization, Finance, Salvage & Wreck Removal, Integrated Logistics and Finance.

Douglas J. Shoemaker will present “Renewable Energy—The Dream vs the Reality” as part of the Decarbonisation & Alternative Energy track on Wednesday, March 30, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Margaret Doyle, President & Founding Director of PortVision50, will moderate the session.

Douglas will delve deep into the detail of renewable and alternative energy. Where are we now with alternative propulsion and renewable energy as a practical alternative to carbon derivative fuels? How much optimism should the industry have that scalable, long-term solutions are on the horizon? And how important is it to focus on skills and the workforce in tandem with technology development?
