Our Energy Frontrunner series presents the year’s best energy and climate tech solutions as well as the people behind them.

Next up is Navalt: the young Indian company that has completely redesigned marine transportation to create a clean, efficient and cost-effective solution that will decarbonise water-based transport. Not only this, but the marine tech start-up also in the technology that powers their fleet, so to present a one-stop solution of both hard and software that can revolutionise the way we travel on water over small, localised distances. What comes next? Thandasherry explains that the only logical place to invest in is more longer-distance, oceans going transport.
