Driven by the compelling benefits of reduced fuel consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and maintenance, the application of hybrid, electric, hydrogen and fuel cell technologies is accelerating across the marine sector. These technologies will clearly have a pivotal role in the years ahead as shipping transitions towards decarbonisation.

Through a series of individual presentations and panel discussions, this two-day conference explored the rapid advances in these technologies, examining the technical, regulatory and operational challenges and benefits. Central to the agenda were the real-world applications and operational experiences from North America and international vessel owners.
