Diesel/Electric Propulsion and Power
Yes, it is still too early to make decisions on this, but I have been following this topic for over a year now. Judging by the web, not much more has been made available by manufacturers of D/E propulsion. Of the stuff I have seen, I really like the concept behind the OSSA powerlite systems. Their approach says that more benefits are realized when you consider D/E propulsion as just a part of an integrated power system. Anyway, they have a promotional video that I thought was informative and not much over-hype.
