AKA’s path to zero emissions

AKA Energy Systems specializes in energy solutions for island and microgrid power systems. With over 27 years of experience, the company has achieved multiple world firsts in hybrid power and propulsion. AKA is focused on leveraging its expertise in energy storage and solutions to drive innovation in the maritime industry toward achieving zero emissions. Jason Aspin, AKA’s CEO and co-founder, will present on the integration of hybrid applications and the use of zero-emission generator technology. The path for the marine industry to transition to emission-free operations at sea and in port will see the utilization of a range of solutions including port electrification, ship to shore power and the integration of renewable energy sources in both port and vessel operations.
