“A vessel on the sea has access to only what was brought aboard, plus seawater, air (wind), and sunlight. Can those simple resources be enough to sustain its operation? It’s a great question because our earth has the same set of limited resources – whatever we have on board, plus water, air, and sunlight. We have the potential to learn a lot as we study the limitations and the possibilities.”

We’re Building A Modular, Open-Source Zero-Net Energy Vessel
(and inviting the whole world to participate)

Project: Z-NEV is a global collaborative learning adventure. Our goal is to design a modular, open-source Zero-Net Energy Vessel (Z-NEV) that is capable of circumnavigating the world’s oceans under her own self-generated power while producing zero emissions and zero waste. With virtual reality technology, users around the world can be on board Z-NEV throughout the design phase and join the crew on voyages around the world.
“I am very happy to be involved in this great project at its early stage. I fully support this project and welcome collaboration in any form in the years to come.”
