Several groups of stakeholders could be identified for this project, including:
- General vendor market, such as providers/developers of wind propulsion systems who would benefit from verifiable and transparent fuel savings predictions. Wind propulsion system providers/developers would be expected to contribute data on their systems because creating sufficient transparency of performance quantification is a general project objective. However, some information may need to remain confidential because of the precompetitive nature of the project.
- Maritime authorities would benefit from better understanding of the link between fuel and CO2 saving technologies, and the regulatory framework
- Independent verifiers could benefit by improving their own methods Ship owners/operators would benefit from transparent and verifiable information on wind propulsion for their fleet.
