Electric Boats & Ships — Markets & Technologies Update

This IDTechEx premium article provides an update on electric leisure boating and electric ship markets in 2022. Drivers and data behind the recent surge in leisure boating sales are explained, with breakdowns by power class and commentary on future expectations. In the commercial and industrial (C&I) shipping sector, ferries have long been the low hanging fruit and remain the most common electric vessel type in-service, but regulations are driving change. Behemoth battery packs installed on a small number of giant sea-going vessels are expected to take over and dominate maritime battery demand within ten years.

Introduction to Interconnectors

Introduction to Interconnectors

Interconnectors are used between countries to transmit electricity from one market to another. This benefits a country that does not wish to curtail their renewable energy, and can aid with fluctuations in supply due to intermittence of solar and wind. Large growth is being seen in the European market, with many projects planned for construction. However, some countries should be cautious so as not to be taken advantage of, as governments must decide whether such projects could affect their domestic electricity prices negatively.

Ultrathin Fuel Cell Uses the Body's Own Sugar to Generate Electricity

Ultrathin Fuel Cell Uses the Body's Own Sugar to Generate Electricity

Engineers have developed a glucose power source that could fuel miniature implants and sensors. The device is smaller than other proposed glucose fuel cells, measuring just 400 nanometers thick, or about 1/100 the diameter of a human hair. The sugary power source generates about 43 microwatts per square centimeter of electricity, achieving the highest power density of any glucose fuel cell to date under ambient conditions.

$102M Funding in 6K To Accelerate Battery Material Production

6K's UniMelt system replaces a three-day, multi-step, high waste chemical co-precipitation (hydro-met) process with one that is ultra-clean and ultra-fast (as low as 2 seconds), powered by a 6000K microwave plasma. Compared to state-of-the-art CAM plants today, 6K uses half the footprint, substantially lower CapEx, and half the conversion costs or less.
