To decrease our impact on climate change we need to increase the share of renewable fuels and be more energy-efficient in driving boats and buses. Today, all buses in Sweden run on HVO and the ferry to Djurgården uses a fuel with 24% renewables.
Electric boats and buses
A key step is our action plan towards electrification of our boats and buses, which applies to the whole Stromma Group. In the Netherlands a total of twenty-one out of forty-eight boats are powered by clean energy already. Our goal is to have all boats in the Netherlands converted to electricity by 2025. In Denmark we have two electric boats so far and more conversion planned.
By training bus drivers and captains in eco-driving there is a large potential for decreasing fuel use. Also, through good planning of tours and speed.
Reducing fuel consumption for our boats
Our boats are our largest source of emissions. Therefore, we have reviewed the timetables for the boats to streamline and optimize our trips, thereby reducing fuel consumption. We have also corrected timetables so that vessels can run at optimal speed between bridges without creating delays. Furthermore, we have replaced large vessels with smaller ones when there are fewer travelers.
