Beyond the Highway: MARINE” explores the opportunities to reduce emissions and boost efficiency in the marine sector. The session explores current and future propulsion systems and fuels, operational strategies, repowering and vessel operation.
While much attention is directed at reducing greenhouse gas and other emissions from highway vehicles, there are considerable opportunities for improving efficiency and reducing emissions in the commercial and recreational marine sectors.
In this session the leaders in advanced marine propulsion explored the state of marine diesel technology and opportunities to reduce emissions and boost efficiency. The session explored current and future propulsion systems and fuels, operational strategies, repowering and vessel operation. The session also spoke to issues around the operation of vessels in sensitive areas in ports and strategies to reduce those impacts.
This web event provided:
- An overview of the diversity of marine applications and propulsion technology, both new and existing, for key segments of the marine sector and the economy.
- The opportunities, timelines and challenges for improving efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas and other emissions through fuels and engine technology today and in the future.
