With their minds on a sustainable future, Dutch firm DSM and Skysail have looked to the past. The companies have taken a centuries-old approach to solving the fuel challenges of today’s cargo ships, reintroducing the use of sails onto massive oil tankers.

The kite sail doesn’t look a traditional sail on ships from the seafaring past. It attaches to a variety of vessels by a light weight tow rope made with Dyneema, which DSM says is the world’s strongest fiber. Shipping accounts for 90% of international trade and in turn is responsible for over 3% of World CO2 emissions. DSM and Skysail’s kite sail reduces fuel use and related CO2 emissions by 35%, the company says. Keep reading →

Wind energy is becoming a popular option even in parts of the world where oil production remains a dominant part of the economy. Tunisia, like distant Texas, is set to become a premier producer of wind power that it could sell to Spanish utilities to meet government requirement.

The World Bank is often criticized by both donor countries and those it lends to, and in this video the Bank defends itself by highlighting the potential benefits from establishing a wind power industry in a developing country. It echoes the lessons project managers took from a solar project in Morocco, also highlighted here. Keep reading →

NJ Governor Chris Christie announced last week that his state would be pulling out the ten-state Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), providing an interesting look at the way in which governors, and other politicians struggling with economic woes, are handling pressures to reduce carbon emissions and internal pressures from constituencies.

RGGI is intended to lower greenhouse gas emissions by setting a cap and trade pricing system with steadily contracting limits. Keep reading →
