The scope of the project is to evaulate the possibilities/prerequisites for the use of alternative forms of propulsion and non-fossil fuels in the inland navigation sector. It aims to provide a basis for decision-making for political representatives, responsible authorities, infrastructure operators and the shipping sector in order to implement further steps towards decarbonisation of the transport sector.
The competitiveness of inland navigation can be increased by the use of new types of propulsion technologies and fuels in freight and passenger vessels and the development of a shore-based supply infrastructure.

The project's success is measured by the regular surveys "Customer Satisfaction Waterway and Locks" and "Satisfaction Business Partners".
