iPGS (innovative Power Generation Research group) directed by Professors Platzer and Sarigul-Klijn investigate Autonomous Energy Ship Concept based on Wind over Water.
Enables the provisions of
- renewably generated electricity
- renewably generated hydrogen
email email@example.com for further information or participation in research.
First proposed in 2009
by M.F. Platzer and N. Sarigul-Klijn at the ASME Energy Sustainability Conference, San Francisco and
received ASME Energy Division Best Paper Award.
Energy Ship Advantages
Energy ships operate in international waters and therefore require no permits
Capacity factors are likely to be twice those of land-based wind turbines
Convoys with autonomous hydrofoil-borne power boats are likely to be cost competitive with off-shore wind turbines
