About the project

GREENFLEET aims to analyse the opportunities and challenges associated with a transition from fossil-based fuels to low- or zero-carbon technologies. With a 'technological innovation systems' perspective at its core, GREENFLEET will analyse the strengths and weaknesses of three focal low- or zero-carbon energy technologies, as well as hybrids of these and conventional energy solutions. The three energy technologies in question are:

  • battery-electric
  • biofuels
  • hydrogen

GREENFLEET aims to illuminate the strengths and weaknesses of novel 'green technologies' that can contribute to emission reductions in the Norwegian maritime shipping sector.
