Marine Transport

EERA identifies technologies, operations, and policies that improve efficiencies of marine vessel freight transportation.  Throughout history, marine transportation is the most prevalent way of carrying freight.  Transport by water is less expensive than air and is used except when time and speed are an issue.  There are over 1900 world ports, 60,000 commercial ships and approximately 4000 container ships in use today.

EERA has worked for the U.S. Department of Transportation on the report entitled Transportation’s Role in Reducing U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions.  This report, released in April of 2010, includes significant sections on options to reduce emissions from goods movement.
