The Electric & Hybrid Marine World Expo 2015 will be held June 23-25 in Amsterdam.

Organizers said the event will host more than 140 exhibitors and feature the latest in new electric and hybrid marine propulsion technologies.

This global event has seen rapid growth since its inception, with 50 percent more exhibitors than last year booked to take part, all with technologies and components and solutions for an international audience of marine industry professionals only, organizers said.

Alongside the exhibition sits the Electric and Hybrid Marine Conference, which organizers said has also seen rapid expansion this year, with more than 70 speakers lined up to take part in two simultaneous conference streams over three days.

Focusing on topics that include “Efficiency Gains from Electric and Hybrid Propulsion,” “Hybrid Systems for Small Craft” and “Lessons Learned from Military Applications,” the conference includes informal discussions and keynote speeches.

The Electric & Hybrid Marine World Expo is organized by the publisher of Electric & Hybrid Marine Technology International.
