The present report provides a technical study on the use of Electrical Energy Storage in shipping that, being supported by a technology overview and risk-based analysis evaluates the potential and constraints of batteries for energy storage in maritime transport applications. In addition, the study provides a detailed description of projects where pilot applications of marine battery systems have been deployed, both for Electric and Hybrid-Electric applications, with a focus on EU co-funded projects such as the E-Ferry.

A safety assessment of a generic baseline lithium-ion battery installation is developed, and the results presented with a focus on thermal runaway prevention for different design variations, including a Fuel Cell-Hybrid design.
