The Silent Transformation of Maritime Transport

The Silent Transformation of Maritime Transport

IDTechEx is one of the few market and technical research companies following marine electrification as part of its wider electric vehicle research -- and it is a segment quietly undergoing a transformation. The marine industry makes significant contributions to global pollution (particularly ocean-going vessels), often out of the spotlight. But in the past decade, regulations that have first focused on restricting particulates emissions, and more recently carbon emissions, are driving change.
