Sustainable Mobility

26 November 2020 @ 11:00 - 12:30

SUSTAINABLE MOBILITY - Sustainable maritime transport solutions and Ports Electrification. Back to the agenda Abstract Electric and low-emission transport solutions connecting islands are vital for the decarbonisation of islands. Existing electric boats are an optimal solution for short touristic trips while low-emission (i.e. LNG-powered) solutions for larger ships have already applied to substitute or transform traditional ferries. Besides, ports electrification can significantly help reducing pollution in islands. In fact, when docks are electrified, ships that are otherwise polluting when harbored, can be connected…
