Because of the sheer size of their sails, yachts have an outstanding ability to capture the sun’s energy! They can wield a significant power production capacity and keep the natural elegance of their sleek lines. This is a very representative WYSIPS application: with no visible changes, the craft produces its own energy. The hull can also generate power if the technology is integrated into synthetic materials like epoxy.
“Because of the sheer size of their sails, yachts have an outstanding ability to capture the sun’s energy!”
Accessible to both motor yachts and sailboats, WYSIPS can provide solutions in innovative areas:
• a source of additional energy for hybrid engines
• self-powered onboard equipment: lighting, radio, GPS, etc.
• power supply to stabilisers
• emergency units (flash lamp, radio, desalinator, etc.) Building photovoltaic cells into watercraft is a conclusive advantage in terms of safety since it means permanent access to energy, often a factor of survival. It also allows for smaller batteries to be used, thus reducing the weight of the vessel. Cette intégration permet aussi de réduire la taille des batteries et donc de diminuer le poids global du bateau.
WYSIPS wants to launch industrial projects in this field as of next year.
This integration necessitates the right industrial process to embed our technology in materials like epoxy and fabrics. With our expertise in microelectronics and energy storage, we also offer electric component and performance optimisation solutions.
