A project emerged that would target some out of the box engineering to achieve true net zero, raising awareness for marine conservation.
My name is Wayne Peters, I have been developing clean energy systems for nearly 15 years. I am a yachtsman, environmentalist, and marine engineer, I live with my partner in an upcycled container house completely off grid on the foothills of Exmoor National Park.
With deep roots in both sailing and sustainability, I am looking at ways to run a commercial sailing vessel by not relying on a fossil fuel to back up the propulsion, heat and power system. To be able to remove all of the fossil fuels onboard, but yet have the same range and meet the same demands as we would expect with a traditional fuel system.
A profound experience with the remarkable Emily Penn when my company was asked to help prepare her yacht for eXXpedition, the world circumnavigation to study ocean plastic, and following the conversion of my sailboat to run on electric, it was clear that more needed to be done to promote advancing technology and forward thinking to address ocean conservation issues.
Now with a group of likeminded friends and colleagues we will create and broadcast potential solutions for alternatives to fossil fuel at sea whilst raising awareness to combat pollution entering our oceans.
You can find out more about what we do by following us on social media. Your support means we can keep working to achieve true net zero when at sea.
