Ferries have a huge role to play in meeting the growing demand for environmentally sustainable transport options. Their dramatically different vessel sizes, configurations and profiles require different approaches to decarbonisation. One approach would be to adopt or retrofit fuel-flexible ferry engines to be able to use alternative, low-emission fuels. Other options include implementing a shore power connection, choosing a hybrid solution, or setting up integrated efficiency technologies onboard.
