NEXT GEN Marine Workshops via Zoom

NEXT GEN Marine Workshops October 2021

We are pleased to announce a superb group of presenters for 2 specialist workshops via Zoom. NEXT GEN Marine BATTERY on 19 October & NEXT GEN Marine HYDROGEN on 20 October.

NEXT GEN programmes combine international marine energy expertise with dynamic Q&A sessions. End-users and industry come together to highlight what is working now and identify viable technology for the near future.

Focus is on topics relevant to workboats, pilot boats, patrol boats, search & rescue, military, offshore, survey vessels, charter, superyachts, ports, harbours and marinas.

NEXT GEN Hydrogen Workshop enables attendees to learn about different methods of utilising hydrogen and potential solutions for marine power. Adopted in 2021, the EU and UK Hydrogen Strategy aims to accelerate the development of clean hydrogen.

Workshop Lead - John Haynes, ‘Next generation onboard energy needs to be safe, reliable, improve efficiency and reduce emissions. Our focus is on viable hydrogen technology that is available today or in the very near future. Alongside this, hydrogen Infrastructure will need rapid investment - with focus on flexibility and safety.'
