Sustainable Energy Systems on Ships is a comprehensive technical reference for all aspects of energy efficient shipping. The book discusses the technology options to make shipping energy consumption greener, focusing on the smarter integration of energy streams, the introduction of renewable resources and the improvement of control and operability. Chapters not only describe each technology individually, but also analyze their interconnections when implemented onboard, and compare them in terms of suitability for different vessels and economic viability.
Readers of Sustainable Energy Systems on Ships will find an invaluable reference suitable for researchers, professionals, and managers involved in the shipping industry and those working on related energy efficiency technologies, fuel cells, and in the transport industry generally. Students of maritime engineering will also be well served by this reference.
