Τhis paper presents the major steps of designing the electric energy system of a ship, the main power units of which are electric batteries. Moreover, the paper is concentrated on discussing and highlighting critical aspects, to which attention must be paid, like criteria of selecting battery units, or special considerations regarding the distribution network as well as the earthing scheme. The discussion is supported by a case study comprising 3 different designs of twin-hull vessels developed within the research project “ELCAT”.
