Re: Alternative to Solar

Thanks a lot for the different Ideas! I am actually consulting two inventors from the technical university of catalunia (UPC - Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya), who are also part of the company SMALLE. They are very tech savvy and passionated about their product but don't really know if their product could be useful for sailors, so I am trying to find out how the product . The company itself is researching a lot in the field of renewable energy.
It would be very interesting to design a boat from scratch with the intend of being as green as possible. There is a German company, which is focusing on electric motors and they are working on a project which is called Deep Blue Hybrid. Check out the video, I really like the idea!

I am not able to post the link here but the company is called Torqeedo and under products you will find the deep blue hybrid!
