SAIL & SOLAR HISTORY
concept of using wind and solar power together on ships is no longer science
fiction, nor is it decades away. There are a number of interesting concepts
under development. In our view the first practical application of combined
wind and solar power was with Solar
Sailor, where sails were also solar panels that could be aimed. Before
this, in the 1980's several Japanese ships were fitted with rigid sails with
the aim of reducing fuel
consumption, driven largely by the oil crisis in the 1970's which resulted in oil shortages and the price of oil soaring.
When the crisis passed and oil prices fell again, the viability of rigid sails in terms of cost was undermined.
SUSTAINABLE CONTAINER SHIPS - This 50m concept vessel may be doubled and quadrupled without too much trouble. You'd need to up-scale by a factor of 8 to match the 400 meter ships that operate today to carry 960 standard containers. See our top ten list below. That is nowhere near the capacity of a heavy bunker fueled giant, but it is a formula for eventual 100% zero carbon transportation that is theoretically workable. We believe that such a system could eventually replace bunker fuels and eliminate the need for liquid fuels that may be potentially dangerous.
CARGO CONTENDERS A list of the top ten fossil fueled leaders that could benefit from solar and wind assistance. You may notice from the specification of these vessels that we are in the right ballpark for power to cargo ratio when comparing DWT to installed engine power:

TRANSFERABLE TECHNOLOGY - The design of the Climate Change Challenger might be adapted to Cargo, Container, Cruise and Ferry designs, without needing to radically alter port facilities. The designs above are not representative of adaptations of the concept, but serve to illustrate the thinking of other design houses.
