December 4, 2018—Thought leaders from across the maritime community came together at Oak Ridge National Laboratory to explore the emerging new energy landscape for the maritime transportation system during the Ninth Annual Maritime Risk Symposium. “The outcomes of this year’s symposium are expected to help the maritime community prepare for the fast-approaching evolution of energy supply and consumption, which is bringing new risks as well as new opportunities,” said ORNL’s Craig Moss, an event organizer. Topping the list of emerging energy trends addressed were clean energy technologies, alternative fuels, resiliency, environmental stewardship and energy storage. Participants included universities, U.S. military, federal government and industry representatives. Co-organizers were ORNL, the U.S. Coast Guard and the National Academies of Science.
