Zero emissions are produced during electric ships are sailing, and electricity can be produced from low or no-carbon sources. Green navigation satisfies stricter emissions regulations, and will not be subject to emissions/fuel taxes.
Electric ships have 30-50% lower operating costs compared to traditional combustion ships. Refuelling with hydrogen is likely to cost ~ 50% of kerosene, and recharging batteries is likely to cost 5-10x less
Electric ships are 90% efficient while conventional combustion ships are only 35% efficient. Investment in battery technology is booming for electric mobility and primary energy storage, never so high worldwide
Attractive to climate-conscious consumers, such as the 46% of passengers who would pay ≥2% or more for carbon-neutral travel. Lower noise emissions increase possible locations served, providing passengers with greater travel flexibility
