Sustainability at this stage costs
a little extra but is considered cheaper in the long environmental
The management of waste in a
renewable cycle is less - there is likely to be little waste because
that's what renewable is, the fuel re-news itself. The sun is the best
example, we can use it over again
It is a direct saving not to have
to clean up or fuel to find.
energy and cost figures is not my expertise but the common thread of
new "component parts"
is efficiently utilising the waste energy
at each stage. The breaking action in an electric car is stored in a
re-used to accelerate. The up and down action on the waves creates a
vacuum in the air tight pressure piston pump.
Sourcing energy from all
directions at once, solar wind wave and tide - is a
broader energy spectrum. Is manouverable and can seek best position
much as any sailing ship
turns to the wind. Only a sea worthy craft
can experience all 4, tide wave wind and solar exposures. Managing
waste energy by improving efficiency with clever ideas.
The efficiency of a floating
desalination plant requires the other
components to compliment the 97% efficient PX Pressure Exchanger and
the VRB Redox
Flow Cell, an 80-90%
re-chargeable scaleable non-toxic renewable battery. The Solar Sailor
some 50% comparative fuel costs. These devices each save energy, they
are tools of
sustainability. A synergy focus of energy recovery
will make it cost efficient.
The energy that is
needed to sustain this comes at a higher cost, but the ongoing fuel
costs are NIL since we're using
renewables, and there is no clean up cost or waste removal or waste
disposal and far less greenhouse gas.
Figuratively speaking, Desal
leave on the
tide and return with a full re-charge and load
of fresh water on the next - without actually leaving the
ability to seek out the best spots is
critical to returning with a full load, and like fishing there's a
catch - but with
computers and satelites we can follow in the un-maned footsteps of
We could remote-control and literally catch enough storm to charge the
energy systems on-board.
To save on costs todays
would be stationary requiring a team of
tug-boats to get around. After all, the job is a portable desalination
