Trio of Sustainable Power Sources for Royal Caribbean's Next Ships

Trio of Sustainable Power Sources for Royal Caribbean's Next Ships

The cruise industry's first hybrid powered ship is set to debut summer 2023 as part of Royal Caribbean Group's ultra-luxury brand Silversea Cruises. The new class of ships, known as 'Project Evolution,' will operate using a trio of power sources including a fuel cell system, battery technology and dual fuel engines using liquefied natural gas as the main fuel. This hybrid solution, using fuel cell technology, allows the ship to be free of local emissions while at port.

Silicon Anodes Muscle in on Battery Technology

Silicon is a staple of the digital revolution, shunting loads of signals on a device that's likely just inches from your eyes at this very moment. Now, that same plentiful, cheap material is becoming a serious candidate for a big role in the burgeoning battery business. It's especially attractive because it's able to hold 10 times as much energy in an important part of a battery, the anode, than widely used graphite.
