The Electric Boat Association of Greece was approved as a sustaining member of the International Council of Marine Industry Associations.
ICOMIA, an international trade association that has represented the global marine industry since 1966, brings together national marine industry associations and sustaining marine organizations to give them a united voice when tackling industry challenges.
No less than 36 national marine industry associations and 46 marine organizations from across the world are members of ICOMIA today, representing the majority of the industrialized countries, including North America, Japan, China, Finland and New Zealand.
ICOMIA said EBA Greece, which was founded in 2016, is a nonprofit organization that promotes the use and development of electrically powered and hybrid boats in Greece, serving the needs of all who have an interest in electric boating, boat owners and business members.
EBA Greece acts as the voice of the electric boat sector in discussions with the inland waterway authorities and government departments that are involved in legislation for matters such as waterway access, charging points, slipway facilities, reduced license fees and the Boat Safety Scheme.
EBA Greece’s mission includes encouraging, coordinating and supporting research or imports of technologies related to electric boating and supporting the efforts of Greek companies and organizations that have an interest in electric boats and their associated technologies.
The group also organizes meetings and events related to electric boating, publicizes the results of research on electric technologies and acts as a technical adviser to groups looking to explore electric boating.
