Ocean Wind Power: Is it the key for a rapid transition to renewable energy? [video]
Platzer, Max F.
MetadataShow full item record
In his lecture Dr. Platzer will argue that the time has come to develop innovative engineering solutions to reduce the global carbon dioxide emissions in order to avert irreversible climate change. He will first present the empirical evidence for global climate change and draw attention to the fact that the available global wind resources are quite sufficient to combat climate change if the winds over the oceans are exploited for power generation. He will show how large unmanned autonomously operating sailing ships can be used to convert the ocean wind power into hydrogen in order to convert the global fossil-based economy into a global hydrogen-based economy. He will conclude with an assessment of recent initiatives to combat climate change. In particular, he will draw attention to the recent call for a Global Apollo Program.
