Sails, Rotors and Kites: Solutions for commercial shipping to become sustainable as fossil fuels decline

Researchers from Aston University explain that while operating measures and fuel alternatives are suitable in the short-term to meet a reduction in carbon emissions from shipping, as the use of fossil fuels tapers off, the long-terms solution appears to reside in wind-assisted ships. Consequently, this study aims to identify viable solutions that could reduce emissions, focusing on three prominent technologies, namely sails, rotors and kites.  Click here to read more ..
