Maritime Hybrid, Electric and Fuel Cells Webinar Week

27 July 2020 - 30 July 2020
09:00 - 17:00

Be sure to join us for Maritime Hybrid, Electric and Fuel Cells Webinar Week 

Beginning 27 July, and following feedback from a hugely successful week on hybrid, electric and fuel cells at the beginning of June, we will be holding a series of daily webinars to give operators insights on the business case, the challenges faced and the road to adoption of the latest technology in two distinct but very different markets – North America and Asia. The webinars are designed to strike the right balance between transmission of key information and interaction with the expert panel assembled and will be delivered at a time of the day best suited to each particular market.


Our discussions are focused, cover the advertised subjects, and deliver registrants actionable insights.


Should you wish to join one of our expert panels please contact Indrit Kruja.


Please join us for any or all of the following:
