 THE INTEGRATED ENERGY SYSTEM

"Ah, but there are better ways, alternatives to this common, inefficient method of deriving ship's electrical energy from running the ship's main propulsion engine. The energy we need is available from the sun, wind, and water, and from more efficient fossil-fueled engines. When combined in an integrated energy system, these contemporary sources can relieve the engine of double duty as a generator by providing 12-volt power for operating on board equipment, including refrigeration."
