18.09.2015 - Ed.

The International Association of Maritime Economists (IAME) conference was held at the Malaysian Institute of Supply Chain Innovation, part of the MIT Global Scale network, in Kuala Lumpur on 24-26 August. The annual conference attracts leading maritime economists from all over the world. In total 162 papers were accepted for presentation at the conference.

The conference's best paper prize was this year awarded to NHH professor Roar Ådland and co-authors and NHH alumni Harrison Alger and Justina Banyte. The paper titled "Does energy efficiency pay? Empirical evidence from the dry bulk timecharter market revisited" investigates whether more energy efficiency efficient ships obtain higher freight rates to reflect the savings in fuel costs. Unfortunately the answer appears to be no, suggesting that there are few financial incentives for the international shipping industry to invest in environmentally friendly new technologies.
