Hybrid and pure-electric propulsion systems have become a major focus for the maritime industry as innovation enables both cost savings and opportunities to satisfy our collective emissions reductions goals. However, our industry includes a variety of vessel types and operational profiles which demand a wide range of solutions. It is the responsibility of designers to ensure we fit the right solution to each vessel type. This webinar will review the state of the art of energy storage and electric-propulsion technology, and show reference cases of where those technologies are most effectively deployed.
