Energy Efficiency for Ships

A majority of the world's ships are diesel-powered. Diesel engines, though, are not energy efficient and emissions from them have an adverse impact on the environment. Ships and cargo vessels are slow moving behemoths that consume a lot of diesel.

Carbon dioxide emission from ships is a serious problem since the amount of emissions from ships and marine vessels is proportional to the amount of fuel consumed by them.
