A Horizon 2020-funded project named E-Ferry will launch an electric drive train ferry service this summer, connecting the Danish island Ærø to the mainland. The ferry can travel 22 miles without needing to be topped up, and will initially make seven trips per day. It will charge for around 20 minutes between journeys as the ferry is loaded with cars.

The project’s first electric ferry is set to launch this summer, and takes advantage of advances in the development of electric batteries. The ferry is an important contribution to combating climate change.The development of an electric drive train ferry service comes at a vital time for efforts to decarbonise the maritime sector in Europe, and around the world.
