Norway commissions zero-emission high speed ferry

Norway commissions zero-emission high speed ferry

Hyon AS has been awarded grants under the PILOT-E scheme for the development and realization of two maritime projects; a high-speed ferry and a short-sea freighter. The ambitions of both projects are to realize zero-emission propulsion via fuel cells using cost-efficient hydrogen produced from electrolysis based on renewable energy.

The Silent Transformation of Maritime Transport

The Silent Transformation of Maritime Transport

IDTechEx is one of the few market and technical research companies following marine electrification as part of its wider electric vehicle research -- and it is a segment quietly undergoing a transformation. The marine industry makes significant contributions to global pollution (particularly ocean-going vessels), often out of the spotlight. But in the past decade, regulations that have first focused on restricting particulates emissions, and more recently carbon emissions, are driving change.

Royal Caribbean to offset emissions with wind power

Royal Caribbean to offset emissions with wind power

Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd has signed a deal with Southern Power for Southern Power's 200-megawatt Reading Wind Facility. This initiative, which will offset up to 12 percent of Royal Caribbean's emissions beginning in 2020, is one of many programs the cruise line has to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
