Last week was the Electric & Hybrid Marine World Expo, held at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Participants from around the world presented cutting edge electric & hybrid marine propulsion technologies, including microturbines, drive control systems, emission reduction technologies, fuel cell technology, and energy storage solutions.

Urban Electric Power had a booth at the event, where we showcased our clean, affordable, and safe zinc manganese batteries:

We were also featured in a presentation on the power of alkaline batteries for energy storage applications, led by our Director of Operations, Ann Marie Scuderi:

Here is her experience from the three-day event:

"The Marine Hybrid Expo offered a unique opportunity for UEP - we were able to not only introduce people to our unique chemistry but we were also able to learn firsthand what the issues are with current battery technologies for marine applications and how our zinc manganese battery can help."
