 ==========================

Yet Jan Lundberg informs s on the progress he makes on trying for there-introduction of sail-shipping powered by wind which is there out free for those ready to “take-it.” This is renewable energy par excellence.

 This Mediterranean-based entity  –  promotes wind energy (sailing) for cargo transport, with pilot projects working with localized economies.  The projects will transport locally grown/made goods across the Mediterranean region and beyond.  As you’ve noticed from our reports, northern Europe has a lot going on in sail transport.   This is due to an EU funded project and forward-looking companies and individual in countries such as the Netherlands the UK.  Yet, there was nothing going on in southern Europe until we came along last summer.

SEE FURTHER:



This being an effort to figure out the economics of re-introducing a sail-fleet for the transportation of goods.

 

WE WONDER IF THE LIVERPOOL CONFERENCE IS READY TO TAKE UP THIS IDEA AS WELL?
