How are Batteries for Boats and Ships Different?

How are Batteries for Boats and Ships Different?

Since 2016 the market for electric and hybrid commercial vessels has started to follow an exponential growth pattern as maritime battery prices halved. However, system-level battery prices for boats are still roughly four times higher than the battery packs sold in electric cars. The following article explores why.

Why Batteries are Essential for the Maritime Sector

Why Batteries are Essential for the Maritime Sector

In 2020 vessel owners have had to deal with an 'emissions control world' for the first time. Unlike most other mobility sectors, which predominantly tend to switch partly or completely to a traction battery in order to meet emissions targets, a mixture of solutions have a role to play for boats and ships.
