Abstract

The world’s 100,000 cargo ships produce about as much carbon emissions as Germany. One of the ways to reduce those emissions (and slash fuel costs) is to borrow a technology from the past and harness wind power. By harnessing advanced simulation tools, engineers have developed promising fuel-saving technologies that do not necessarily resemble the tall masted ships of the past. This article shows how Europe is leading the way.
