The development of business models related to the several use-cases triggered by the FLEXSHIP development actions has already started to be shaped.
Framed within this task, the key representative business use-cases will be identified and then analyzed in terms of its specific key metrics for business development. (i.e. components modularization, retrofitting, techno-economic indicators, LCAs, operational efficiencies, renewable impact and penetration, grid infrastructures changes, electricity pricing, etc). Once done, the use-cases business models will be simulated and the associated strategies for achieving profitability will be brought up.
Finally, as for one of the FLEXSHIP outcomes, a virtual demonstration (proof-of-concept) of FLEXSHIP solutions operating fully electric on sailing distance of 300nm will be delivered.
FLEXSHIP received funding from EU Horizon Europe research and innovation program under Grant Agreement no. 101095863.
