Electric propulsion in the Dutch inland shipping sector

Ambitions for carbon neutrality come in many sizes. On the international stage, numerous countries around the world have declared their intentions to attain a state of net zero carbon emissions. This list is quite exclusive; comprising less than ten countries, including ‘big names’ such as Norway and Sweden as well as small low-lying island nations such as Maldives and Tuvalu. The Swedish government has taken the issue a step further than specified by the Paris Climate Agreement, using it as a springboard to pass legislations with even more ambitious goals.

It must be said, however, that these national ambitions can only be achieved with an all-inclusive approach. In other words, switching energy policies from coal to renewables is not enough to accomplish carbon neutrality. Emissions originating from transport and industry also have to be addressed.
