The aim of the project is the construction of a zero emission electric propulsion boat used by public transport. Our idea is to define a completely zero impact project. The ferry boat is powered by lithium-ion batteries that can be charged at any harbor ship visits. Furthermore, in order to obtain a definitely eco friendly propulsion system, the energy consumption will be recovered by a photovoltaic plant. The project is designed for the Lake Trasimeno, where the public transport is necessary for inhabitants on the island Maggiore. Starting from the observation of the route, that is fixed and well defined, it is possible to know the boat’s energy demand and proceed with the design of a suitable electric boat and his energy storage/management system. -
