KEYNOTE: Exponential disruption
Energy storage and EV technologies continue to evolve, with ever increasing capacities and energy density. This session considers what the long-term impact on the shipping industry may be, and looks at cross sectoral learnings from the more mature automotive and aviation markets to inform strategic thinking.
- What will be the role of China in the marine battery/ electric propulsion sector?
- How can energy-storage help supply sufficient clean energy for shipping on demand?
- How will supply side pricing evolve with capacity increases and economies of scale?
- Will global changes in fossil fuel consumption impact shipping routes and vessel types?
KEYNOTE: Legislative drivers
We unpick the complex web of local, national and international regulation that is driving the hybridisation and electrification of global shipping: from Norwegian fjords set to become the first maritime zero emission zone by 2026 to the IMO’s ambitious 2050 CO2 reduction target.
- Is a localised approach the best option to achieve emissions reduction targets?
PANEL: New hybrid vessel types - OSV, PSV, tugs & cruise
Our expert panel discuss the opportunities to utilise electric and hybrid power and propulsion beyond the ferry market.
- Have these technologies proved commercially viable in other vessel types?
