The Department for Transport has launched a bidding process for the £1.5 million funding aimed at establishing zero-emission shipping routes to and from the UK. This pot aims to develop cleaner journeys for passengers and freight, create new jobs and boost the economy.

The fifth round of the Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition (CMDC5) will support feasibility studies focused on accelerating the development of ‘green corridors’ to map out necessary infrastructure, costs and regulatory measures essential for the decarbonisation of shipping routes. If successful, there will be zero-emission shipping routes between the UK, Netherlands, Norway, Denmark and Ireland.

The UK-Ireland competition opened for bids on 15th April 2024 and the UK-Netherlands competition will open for bids shortly after on 3rd June 2024. Both countries will provide match funding of £430,000. The competitions and procurements will be managed by delivery partner Innovate UK.
