The research focused on the case study of the decarbonization of the the inland waters of the Orta lake, Piedmont, Italy by substituting its diesel-based fleet with electric vessels.

Researchers from Eurac Research developed an optimization model to identify the minimum electric fleet size needed to fully replace Orta Lake’s current diesel boats, considering the lake’s routes, boat schedules, charging constraints and transport demand.
