The conversation about eliminating carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from vehicles often revolves around electrifying cars, buses, and trucks. However, cargo and tanker ships that contribute 3% of all CO2 emissions are hardly discussed.
With Singapore's plans to switch its entire fleet of buses – numbering around 5,800 now – to electric and hybrid buses by 2040, fast charging systems that can cater to high power output – over a few hundred times higher than those required by electric cars – will be required.
The project will see ABB provide high power charging infrastructure for the fleet, which is expected to have 1,000 electric buses operating across the country and with a capacity to transport 50,000 passengers a day.
A Toyota Mirai has covered more than 1000 kilometers on a single tank of fuel, surpassing previous long-distance achievements for a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle.
Cavotec has won a series of orders in the second quarter with a total value of EUR 5M to equip the world’s largest new-build container ships with ShorePower systems.
Nor-Shipping’s newly announced Ocean Now initiative aims to set the stage for maritime’s energy transition with the announcement of a new, global conference, Nor-Shipping Hydrogen Blue Talks – Fuelling the Future.
Energy efficiency or carbon intensity (defined as CO2 emissions per transport work, ed.) is a possible point of convergence between the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and EU regulations to cut GHG emissions and decarbonize shipping. Short term measures to increase energy efficiency and achieve carbon intensity savings include voyage optimization.
Enterprise Rent-A-Car has taken delivery of 17 Toyota hydrogen fuel cell electric cars as part of a number of initiatives to explore alternative fuels to deliver low and zero-emission transport.
Following agreements signed in March 2020, cooperation between the Uzbekistan Ministry of Energy, the Ministry of Investments and Foreign Trade, and ACWA Power has led to three major milestones in the development of power projects to enable Uzbekistan’s ambitious energy transformation plan and increase energy capacity by 2500 MW.
