    Sailing On Sun And Wind

    “…In 2019 the world’s first solar energy sails will be put to the test. Called EnergySails, the [Japanese] technology should enable ships to use both solar and wind energy at the same time…The EnergySails themselves [made of carbon fiber or steel] will also help ships collect and store energy even while docked…[and can] be stored during rough weather conditions…[Feasibility tests on multiple ships are now being conducted] to estimate how much propulsion an EnergySail system could provide to the ships while also accounting for how much solar power the on-board panels would receive on each individual ship’s route…[One ship will be chosen for a 12 to 18 month trial and] fitted with an array of EnergySails, solar panels on deck, and the hardware necessary to monitor and control every part of the system…[It has not yet been determined what the] EnergySail-equipped ships will be hauling…” click here for more
