Alternative power sources for submarines
08 May 2019

Batteries were used for running submerged and gasoline or diesel engines were used on the surface and during snorting to recharge the batteries. Early boats used gasoline but quickly gave way to diesel, because of reduced flammability. Yet, over the years, other power sources have been investigated, and successfully applied.
