The Faro Powerdock is a solar-powered dock that charges an electric boat with clean energy. “The boat can [then] be used to power other components or even provide power to the electrical grid,” says Luis Marinho Falcão, partner and head of communications and sustainable growth at Powerdock manufacturer Faroboats. The setup also elevates the boat above the water, eliminating the need for harmful anti­fouling paints that keep sea life from attaching to the hull. The dock fits Faro’s own speedboats and is planned to fit any electric or hybrid boat up to 12 m.
