Innovation in renewable energy is enabling wind to generate power and reduce emissions for ocean tankers

A huge innovation in renewable energy has come about in an attempt to reduce emissions from great ocean tankers. Huge cylinders have been innovated to increased wind power efficiency, no matter which direction it is flowing in, in an attempt to reduce costs and carbon emissions. Furthermore it will lessen the dependence on fossil fuels. Reports suggest that implementing this technology can provide savings on fuel consumption by 7-10%. The technology will be ready to power ships in 2018, and analysis can be conducted from then. For more information, visit the Guardian website.
