The general aim of the project, in full agreement with the Directives of the European Community – European Directive 2008/56/CE entitled “Direttiva quadro sulla strategia per l’ambiente marino” and communication of the European Commission (2009)8 entitled “Obiettivi strategici e raccomandazioni per la politica UE dei trasporti marittimi fino al 2018” – is to take part to the energetic technologies already available for the ships (fuel cell systems with hydrogen and liquid fuel, 3rd generation batteries, photovoltaic and wind generation systems). The main object is to stimulate the adoption of naval transport systems with high efficiency and low environmental impact, by preparing, at the same time, an embryonic framework for the diffusion of the hybrid ships: this last issue can reveal an interesting opportunity for both the end-users and the constructors. In this project, two general objectives can be distinguished: from one side the target is to apply in several kind of ships, some energetic systems and related devices representing the state-of-the-art of industrial research in the area of high efficiency technologies with low environmental impact; from the other side, the target is to develop new and more advanced energetic systems, suitably developed for the naval applications.

The research activities which should be developed by ISSIA-CNR, uos of Palermo, are all in the framework of the OR1, entitled: ”study and development of energetic technologies to be applied on-board in a yacht, aiming to the energetic consumption reduction, to the reduction of fuel consumption and to the increase of the autonomy”.
The activities and sub-activities in which ISSIA-CNR, uos of Palermo, is involved are the following:
1.3 Study of innovative (electric and hybrid) systems for the energy generation to be used for the propulsion of the ship and for the supply of the auxiliaries
1.3.1 Missions’ profiles definition;
1.3.2 Design of the electric generation subsystem;
1.4 Study and design of the generation and storage sub-systems
1.4.1 Study and design of the storage system;
1.4.4 Study and design of the electric conversion systems (DC-DC aand DC-AC);
1.4.5 Study and design of the electric energy generation systems renewables for the auxiliaries.
1.5 Characterization and integration at a laboratory scale of the single subsystems
