There are only two kinds of electric propulsion.

1. Totally powered by renewable resources using the batteries as the storage.

2. Hybrid where mechanical means are used to generate electricity and charge the batteries - sometime in combination with solar, wind, turbine power.

There are no others.

The company in question - has very much the same mantra as Re-E-Power. And for further clarification - electric propulsion is usually defined as that powered by the batteries where a sail drive propulsion is categorized as being that which has mechanical assist from aux gen sets.
