In ports and the maritime industry, the diesel engines are still commonly used as an energy source when laying on shore, for example when the shore’s grid connection is insufficient. This can be expensive and damaging to the environment. A more sustainable and cost-effective alternative is using batteries or other clean mobile energy systems as an energy source.
Clean energy systems provide a reliable source of energy, produce zero emissions, and can be charged using shore power when available. Incorporating clean energy systems into the maritime industry can lead to cost savings, a reduction in GHG emissions, and a more sustainable and quiet operation.
