Giant Boat Is Powered Entirely By Solar Energy

May 14, 2018

This huge seacraft is developed by Swiss company PlanetSolar, who wanted to create a vessel which was environmentally friendly and produced zero-emissions. Developed in 2010, the MS Tûranor PlanetSolar is the largest solar-powered boat ever built. Its 500 solar panels can provide 120 kilowatts of energy, allowing the ship to travel around 5 knots. The boat has now been donated to the Race for Water Foundation, who will now use the ship as a laboratory for scientific missions to raise awareness about alternative energy solutions.

Scientists New Energy Breakthrough That's 10X Better Than Wind & Solar!

video | July 24, 2022

he world has come around to see we need to produce energy as responsibly as possible. However, there is one major hurdle that we face when it comes to producing energy through renewable sources; intermittency! Can renewable energy be produced any time energy is needed? That is a question wind and solar power cannot answer yes to! There is, however, a breakthrough method of generating energy that neatly solves the intermittency problem that plagues wind and solar energy! This game-changing tech is tidal energy and is getting many players in the energy industry excited! What is tidal energy? How does it work? And what are the potentials? Join us...
