Financing energy transition towards zero emissions in inland navigation

The Central Commission for the Navigation of the Rhine published initial qualitative results of the in-depth study on the “Financing of energy transition towards a zero-emission European inland Navigation sector”.

The study consists of the main study conducted by the CCNR and two complementary studies, supported by the Netherlands and Switzerland.

The latter ones deal respectively with:
1. the polluter-pays principle in the IWT sector; 
2. the economic and technical assessment of technologies to achieve the zero-emission objective for IWT by 2050.

The main objectives of this overarching study project are:
• advising on the development of a European funding and financing scheme to support the energy transition of the sector;
• thereby, paving the way for political decisions based on evaluation and, where appropriate, implementation of the study conclusions.
