With small and large ferries playing an important role in European transport, electrification of such traffic is becoming an effective and readily available solution for reducing carbon emissions. And the great news is that European ferries can go electric today. But what does this mean and what are the benefits of this change? In short, electrification is a proven solution, not just in cutting emissions drastically but in improving air quality in ports, with standardised, cost-effective and commercially available technology.
