Electrified systems: how to turn sustainability targets into reality
Electrification has emerged as a promising solution to reduce the industry's carbon footprint. As a huge contributor to CO2 emissions, the transition to using electric propulsion and power distribution instead of traditional fossil fuels will be an important step forward for the defence industry. In fact, with the integration of sustainable and secure technologies, an electrified future will greatly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of military operations, while also reducing the environmental footprint and increasing survivability. However, it isn’t a simple undertaking to determine the most effective approach to an electrified future that will achieve sustainability targets, without impacting mobility, lethality or established logistics systems.
This panel will discuss some of the key questions to consider when establishing sustainability targets and explore possible strategies and supporting tactics to meet those objectives.
