Energy Observer, the first ship propelled by renewable energies and hy­dro­gen, drop­ped an­chor in Va­len­cia in la­te Au­gust as part of a six-year-long pro­ject, when it is plan­ned to vi­sit 50 coun­tries, with 101 ports of call. The ves­sel was ma­de in Ca­na­da in 1983 to com­pe­te in trans­o­cea­nic re­gat­tas and it has been ow­ned by dif­fe­rent peo­ple, un­der dif­fe­rent na­mes and won se­ve­ral pri­zes. Back in 2015, Fre­de­ric Dahi­rel and Vic­to­rien Erus­sard sub­mit­ted their pro­ject to the Al­ter­na­ti­ve Energies and Ato­mic Energy Com­mis­sion and the La­bo­ra­tory for In­no­va­tion in New Energy Tech­no­lo­gies and Na­no­ma­te­rials and they suc­cee­ded. This is the first elec­tri­cally propelled ship to use a com­bi­na­tion of renewable energies and hy­dro­gen pro­duc­tion system, with sea wa­ter ta­king cen­ter sta­ge. The ves­sel pro­du­ces all the energy it needs and it does not dis­char­ge any green­hou­se gas or po­llu­ting par­ti­cles.
