The changed attitudes and new initiatives being brought about with the Biden Administration are set to radically change the face of the US maritime industry – and one of the big winners will be the electrification and hybridization of workboats, ferries and superyachts, along with other special-application marine vessels.
Firmly established in Europe, Electric & Hybrid Marine World Expo has already clocked up eight years since its inaugural staging in Amsterdam in 2014, and is now set to give rise to its new US counterpart. Instantly widely acclaimed as ‘the right time and the right place for the show’, exhibitor bookings are coming in fast and the 110,000ft2 of booth space is expected to sell out quickly. The Expo will showcase leading technology suppliers and partners, featuring technologies for both boats and ports. Tony Robinson, CEO of UKi Media & Events, the event organizer, says, “The technology for the boats is of course paramount, but the infrastructure development in ports and harbors is just as critical.”
Electric and Hybrid Marine World Expo North America will be held in Houston, Texas, March 22 & 23, 2022. An exclusive conference will feature up to 80 expert speakers, and as many as 200 international exhibitors are expected. Technologies on show will include batteries, hybrid propulsion solutions and innovations in alternative fuels, with exhibitors keen to make the business case for switching to electric and hybrid technology across both the commercial and private sectors.
With legislators, investors and owners increasingly concerned about the greenhouse gas emissions and detrimental impact of more traditional marine vessels, Electric & Hybrid Marine World Expo North America offers US shipowners and fleet operators the convenience of sourcing an impressive display of alternative, sustainable solutions, all under one roof.
