As the maritime industry charts a course towards a sustainable future, the electrification of vessels stands at the helm of innovation. Join us at the International Workboat Show for an enlightening panel discussion moderated by Marcelino Alvarez, as he guides industry leaders through the currents of marine electrification. 

With a focus on practical insights and real-world experiences, this panel brings together esteemed representatives from the New York Power Authority, San Diego Gas & Electric, Port of Seattle, Port of Los Angeles, and Silverback Marine. Each panelist will share their unique journey towards embracing electrification, shedding light on the challenges, opportunities, and strategies they’ve encountered along the way. 

This session delves into the intricacies of electrification beyond the motor system. From infrastructure considerations to operational logistics to calculating ROI and payback periods, attendees will gain a comprehensive understanding of the ecosystem surrounding vessel electrification and how to fund early pilot programs given the current incentive landscape. 

Furthermore, the panel emphasizes the importance of hearing directly from those navigating these waters firsthand — customers, utilities, and boat builders. These industry delegates will lend their voices to the conversation, offering invaluable perspectives that extend beyond the technology and hype and into practical day-to-day considerations.

Join us as we navigate the currents of vessel electrification, steering towards a future where sustainability and innovation converge on the water.
