    Rachel Nuwer, 18 April 2018 (PBS-Nova)

The sails—which are as thin as cardboard and flexible like plastic—will harness the ample wind and solar energy of the open oceans, cutting back on fuel consumption. Ultimately, the technology could lower a vessel’s emissions by up to 10%...Around 100,000 large cargo ships regularly crisscross the world’s oceans, delivering cargo from point A to point B. In doing so, they burn through a staggering [250 million tons of fuel] annually…[T]he industry is the world’s sixth-largest source of man-made greenhouse gas emissions…[Because the shipping industry has no] mandatory emissions regulations…[it powers ships with dirty and cheap] heavy fuel oil…[But the United Nations agency that regulates shipping just adopted a strategy to lower emissions] 50 percent by the year 2050…Eco Marine Power’s system] can be outfitted on basically any ship…” click here for more
