Everything starts with the why! Why do we need changes in the powering of short sea ferries? The shorts sea shipping is challenged by environmental, social and economic issues – in short there is a need to ensure sustainable transport.
This presentation will show why we find that the E-ferry concept is found to be the most sustainable alternative for propulsion of short sea ferries. I will present for you the whys – but also discus the barriers that has to be broken down before the concept can be a paradigm shift for short sea ferries. At this point the EU believes that this is possible and Horizon 2020 founding has been promised to the project.
