The Maritime Transport Efficiency Conference / MTEC is pleased to welcome Leclanché amongst its partners. Founded in 1909 and based in Yverdon, Switzerland, Leclanché is a world leading provider of high-quality energy storage solutions, accelerating the integration of renewable energy and powering the electrification of transport systems.
“We are honored to be part of and to support this conference,” said Anil Srivastava, CEO of Leclanché. “It provides a unique opportunity to meet key players and to discuss innovations and technologies that will help make the marine industry cleaner, safer and more efficient. We view the maritime industry as core to our business given its commitment to working towards reduced emissions and adopting cleaner technologies. That’s especially critical as the marine transportation market is responsible for 13,6% of the total greenhouse gas emissions caused by transportation.”
The Maritime Transport Efficiency Conference was created to bring together all stakeholders involved in maritime transport technology, create a positive dynamic around sustainability issues, encourage and promote innovation and new developments aimed at improving the environmental balance sheet and reduce operating costs.
The conference will take place in Geneva, Switzerland, on October 5-6, 2020. It is open to all stakeholders in maritime transport and motorboats concerned about their environmental impact and determined to reduce their operating costs, as well as politicians, technology developers, students or NGO’s.
“We are very proud to welcome Leclanché among our partners,” says Bernard Schopfer, organiser of the Maritime Efficiency Transport Conference. “Leclanché provides solutions that are already implemented on some ships, for example the e-ferry Ellen in Denmark, which works perfectly well. It illustrates the fact that new solutions are available now and have the potential to increase the efficiency of the maritime transport industry, and this is at the heart of what we want to promote during our conference.”
