Status of the development of green ferries

Status of the development of green ferries
More and more ferries on short routes in Denmark will in the coming years become “green ferries” At this event, especially the huge topic of transfer of electricity from shore power connections to the ferries will be highlighted.
The Danish Government’s target to be carbon neutral by 2050 and the new climate law to cut emissions 70% by 2030, has put pressure on the blue Denmark to start transitioning to greener ferry operations and to embark on a journey towards zero emission ferry.  

Hear some of the latest news from Danish ship designers about the transition towards a more green ferry operation, including green energy efficiency initiatives already implemented to ongoing research and innovation projects. The presentations will share thoughts on how to reach this zero emission goal.
