New association will champion electric propulsion

A new association designed to champion and accelerate the implementation of electric marine solutions will officially be launched on Saturday (30th September) at the Monaco Yacht Show.

The International Electric Marine Association has the mission to decarbonise the planet’s waters and protect global health through innovation and sustainability.

“It’s incredibly impressive, and inspiring, to witness the multitude of emerging technologies from around the world dedicated to providing scalable solutions for the objective of non-combustion water systems,” said IEMA founder and president Adria Jover. “These innovations deserve increased visibility, strong representation, valuable partnerships, and supportive legislation to thrive.”

Members hope the new association will take a prominent position in advocating for the electrification of coastal and marine navigation systems.


Aims of the association will be to:

· Represent and advocate for the electric boat industry in matters of production, electrical grid, data, and regulations with all levels of government.

· Consolidate the rules and standardisations of all components, approvals, and further certificates.

· Facilitate collaboration between members, foster the sharing of best practices and attract capital investments for the industry.

· Be an education and market data source for the electric marine industry.

· Be the principal link with international associations, academies, and media that promote a shared mission.    

Members also believe that the transition to electric marine solutions will create thousands of manufacturing jobs, protect global health, and preserve the world’s waters through innovation.
