"Lessons learned from the commercial exploitation of marine batteryenergy storage systems"

Large, safe, cost-effective battery energy storage systems (BESSs) are key enablers to electrify the waterborne sector. Here we share lessons learned from more than 750 recent commercial marine BESS installations to bridge the gap between research results and industrial requirements. The lessons learned aim at supporting ship owners/ operators to install more BESSs on their vessels and to optimize the operations of the installed BESSs.
