BTJ 5/14 - Wind energy

While others are experimenting with e.g. algae, to replace one type of fuel with another, the Wind Challenger Project intends to harness the power of wind, just as ships did in the pre-engine era.

Current large cargo vessels are invariably burning fossil fuel oil as their propulsion energy. However, reducing fuel consumption is nowadays the biggest issue for the global maritime community if we are to head towards a low carbon society.

By Dr. Kazuyuki Ouchi, Leader of the Wind Challenger Project, Graduate School of Frontier Sciences, University of Tokyo
