Maritime Technology Fund or similar is needed

Ship emissions are #9 WWBoth near-term and long-term emission reductions are especially needed in maritime transport due to long lifetime of ships and their engines (symbolized by the mitigation*2 title).
Significant total emission reductions will only come with deployment of technology breakthroughs/transformations, such as hydrogen transport. At the same time investment in maritime Research & Design has been declining in recent years.

Investing in bringing forward transformations has major benefits

Simulations clearly show the great importance of bringing forward the step changes called for by IMERS, as animated below (after about 3 seconds).
