scientific disciplines such as research, together with engineering and technology.
Each discipline contributes in a different way.
Solar Navigator research expedition
Projects such as Solar Navigator do not qualify for financial support from the EA, although the EA approves of the practical research, such as it is applied to marine transport and the possibility of clean renewable energy directly applied. One way to bring down the price of solar panels is to make their use more popular and acceptable, where fast diesel and petrol powered cars and boats are currently seen as the in thing.
We know of projects such as solar powered houses and now a hotel planned for construction in Bali as an example of the way forward. In order to implement such projects in the UK and Europe, planning policy and the mindset of local officials will have to change to reflect the move to Agenda 21 objectives. Whereas, in the USA and Australia people are actively encouraged to pursue such projects and the take up is gathering momentum.
