100% Electric MF Ampere ferry Floating for cleaner air in the Norwegian fjords. Without big changes, the International Council on Clean Transportation warns sea transport could be responsible for 17 percent of CO2 emissions by 2050, up from 2-3 percent now. But some projects on electric boats already started and around 200 are already operating worldwide. But the Next Ferry You Board Might Run on Batteries. In Norway the rias coast was formed by erosion of glaciers “Fjords”. There are many, each of which is also a tourist attraction. Diesel-driven ferries, including local residents, are used as important movement feet in the vicinity of the fjord, as many people visit but the construction of bridges from special topography is expensive. The world's first "electric ferry" that does not emit exhaust gas at all in Norway without using diesel fuel has in operation since one year, and it is estimated that annual CO2 emissions can be reduced by about 300,000 tons. There are more than 20 million cars and trucks in and around Norway's fjord, most of whom use ferries connecting the fjords. Depending on the fjord, there is also a narrow cliff topography with a width of 2 to 3 kilometers and a depth of 700 meters, so it is not realistic to pass a bridge. Therefore, there are about 130 ferry passages around the fjord but toxic exhaust gases such as CO2 emitted by diesel ships are a problem. A Norwegian ferry company, is planning to open a ferry route by three full electric-powered large-scale ferries “Ampere". Ampere has a battery with a weight of 11 tons and a capacity of 800 kWh and is driven by two electric motors installed at both ends of the ship. The ship may do 24 flights of 50 minutes per day, with a consumption of 180kWh per flight. A 9 minutes charging during a berth is required. #ampere#ferry#norway#magnumcap#evse#energy#energystorage#electricmobility#ev#electricvehicles#evcharging#fastcharging#solarenergy#renewableenergy

Be prepared! This #tra2018 Newspaper* contains everything you need to know about the upcoming conference “Transport Research Arena” in Vienna - the biggest transport research conference in Europe 💪🏼 Major topics are Digitalisation, New Mobility, Decarbonisation, Research Strategies, Automatisation. Get your ticket now and join us: April 16-19, 2018 in Vienna // *”Newspaper” is produced by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation &Technology #conference#digitalisation#decarbonisation#automatisation#strategy#future#vienna#transport#mobility
#brexit, #innovation and #decarbonisation, together with the European Commission’s Mobility and Clean #mobility Package proposals, topped the agenda in Brussels last week, as groups from IRU's EU membership gathered for two days of debate.
One of our conference-highlights will definitively be the round-table-discussion with high level representatives about "Europe on the move"! Climate change, dependency on oil, air pollution, noise and safety are just a few of the multiple challenges the mobility system today has to face. How the European industry can set the tone towards 2030 and up to 2050 is the main topic of the 1st Industrial Round Table launched at TRA 2018 in Vienna. These high level representatives will discuss at the round table: 👉🏼Carole Desnost (SNCF, Chief Innovation Officer), representative of the Rail Sector / 👉🏼 Axel Flaig (Airbus, SVP R&T), representative of the Aviation Sector / 👉🏼 Emmanuel Forest (Bouygues, Senior Vice-President of Institutional and European Affairs), representative of the Construction Sector / 👉🏼 Helmut List (AVL, CEO), representative of the Road Sector, 👉🏼 Hanna Maurer Sibley (Ericsson, Head of Presales NWS North Central Europe), representative of the ICT Sector, 👉🏼 Bernard Meyer (Meyer Shipyards, Managing Director), representative of the Waterborne Sector. 🚨Get your ticket now!🚨 #tra2018#transport#mobility#dgmove#europe#digitalisation#automatisation#decarbonisation#climatechange#airpollution#dgmove#conference#vienna#shapethefuture#strategy#indudtry#research#science#multimode#rail#aviation#construction#road#ict#waterborne
One of our many highlights: Opening session with keynote by @gleonhard Gerd Leonhard, Futurist, Humanist, Author and CEO of "The Futures Agency", on April 16, 2018 in Vienna. Digitisation, Automatisation and Decarbonisation are major trends that will drastically change the way we live, work and use mobility and transport in the future. Under the heading of “A digital Era for Transport”, the Transport Research Arena 2018 (TRA 2018) will explore, discuss and demonstrate these major paradigm shifts specifically directed at important areas of our life, such as transport, mobility, logistics and industrial production.
