Topic: Electrifying the Maritime Industry’s Future

Speaker: Brent Perry (CEO of Shift Clean Energy)

Brent Perry is the CEO of Shift Clean Energy and a marine battery industry pioneer. Perry defined an industry when he oversaw the development of the world’s first battery for marine propulsion. Energy storage systems are now a major – and increasingly important – player on the global marine energy scene. In the years since that first battery, he has become a world expert on lithium energy storage in marine applications. His 30-year history in commercial shipbuilding and deep knowledge of energy systems gives him a unique perspective on the hybrid and electric marine industry.

Perry will be in Glasgow as chairman of the Zero Emissions Ship Technology Association, which is hosting a 3-day conference called Ship Zero during the COP 26 conference.
