Abstract: The extensive use of fossil fuels have resulted in the extinction of the world fossil reservoirs, and brought tremendous change in earth’s environment. One such activity is powering marine ships from conventional fossil fuels that contribute towards pollution. Solar energy has potential to address this concern. However, solar energy being intermittent in nature is storage dependant. Presently, lithium-based batteries are fulfilling the global need of energy storage which is self-discharging, highly expensive to recycle and emit fumes. To overcome such challenges, a novel proton-battery which works on the principle of unitized regenerative fuel cell is proposed in this paper along with conventional photovoltaic system suitable for marine ship power supply. The fabrication of an experimental set-up is disclosed. The obtained experimental results revealed the technical feasibility of the proposed system. The proposed system for marine ships could play a vital role catering this industry to contribute towards a sustainable future.
