Presentation

Electric waterbus concept for public transport

By 2050, the global population is projected to reach 10 billion, with 75% of people residing in cities. Facing this rapid population shift and the resulting gridlock of land-based transportation, urban planners are looking to their waterways to ease congestion on city streets, creating integrated water-land public transport networks with climate-friendly water taxis, ferries and other passenger vessels. Together with Fassmer Shipyard, Torqeedo will present a groundbreaking emission-free electric waterbus concept to meet these needs today. The session will cover boat design, maneuverability, battery technology, charging concepts and energy management.
