NEXT GEN 2021 - Feedback
The engagement at NEXT GEN Marine BATTERY and HYDROGEN Workshops was simply superb. Our challenge was to have the right people and sectors onboard. Then encourage knowledge sharing and collaboration between presenters and everyone attending. What a great group – THANKS TO ALL!!
John Haynes - Managing Director, Shock Mitigation / NEXT GEN Workshop Lead
Thank you very much for the fantastic guidance and chairing this fantastic energy event. Energy supply and energy usage (electrical or hydrogen or other media) need to be developed in a way that they are easily accessible for our Industry (Yards, Marinas, Sea & Inland Ports) and Ship Owners & Boat Users. Therefore a good cooperation between all Stakeholders will be necessary. Like to see more of these events!
Albert Willemsen - Environment & Sustainability Manager, ICOMIA
It was very interesting to hear from the different sectors. Great format once again, engaging, informative and lots of great experience being shared.
Charles Broughton - Naval Architect Energy & Marine Technology, Babcock Int
I found the event to be really useful. The presentations and discussions were very interesting and informative – time well spent!
Chris Mace - Commander, Border Force Maritime Command
Thank you for a very interesting, well-organized and professional webinar.
Kristina Fløche Juelsgaard - Dir of Market Development, Ballard Power Systems
An excellent two days covering a wide variety of technical aspects and expert views. It is so important that experts, engineers and operators can discuss the issues associated with these developing applications in an open and positive environment, and the NEXT GEN forums provide such an environment. Well hosted by John, as always, the sessions provided a wide illustration of the challenges and the developments relevant to the electrical and hydrogen propulsion installations and infrastructure.
Steve Beech - Director, Safeguard Engineering
Workshops were world class, professional yet friendly, personal and hugely informative.
Jamie Marley - Managing Director, Marine Electrification Solutions
Very well done for a really great event. The format worked well for me and it was well worth my time and effort to join in. I learned a lot from presentations and discussions.

Thank you for organising two very informative afternoons. I look forward to attending more in the future.
Phil Loveridge - Principal Engineer, Mechanical Production Engineering, BMT
The event was extremely well organised over the Zoom platform and the scheduling ran well to plan. It became clear that the presenters are dedicated to making a difference to the marine industry, for the better. The workshop format is particularly effective as was the audience interaction through written questions.
Peter Foot - Managing Director, Pallington Foot
Many thanks for the excellent conference! I found both days very interesting & valuable.
Rare to find an event that encourages such open and honest discussion and useful sharing of experiences, attracting well informed and respected professionals. You have created an excellent forum here that should be rolled out to other industries!
Richard Threlfall - Warwick Control Technologies
The NEXT GEN Marine Hydrogen Workshop was an excellent event supporting the Marine industry in the transition to clean, efficient and affordable zero carbon propulsion technologies for integration into commercial applications.
Tony Reid - Business Development Manager, IAAPS / University of Bath
A very interesting and informative two days. The technical presentations greatly expanded my engineering knowledge and already this has proven worthwhile in the new work we are doing. I would highly recommend NEXT GEN conferences to anyone involved in maritime vessel and infrastructure design.
James Glover - Managing Director - DYENA
Thank You! I found your seminar very informative.
Michael Peash - Senior Sales Manager, American Battery Solutions
With the changing pace of technology in the marine industry I believe it is so important to keep educating ourselves on the technology available to us. I find workshops like this very helpful as you don’t only gain information from the presentations but also from the discussions which follow. Overall the whole experience was a very positive one.
