Energy_Animal_poster by Antonio Carvalho Fernandes

>> Can we harness nature energy at sea? From which sources?

>> Can we combine different renewable energies to provide a more reliable electric output?

>> Can we make small low maintenance modules that will drift across the oceans, off-grid?

>> Do we need to pay for energy when energy (wind, sun, waves...) is everywhere infinitely available? Can we avoid energy wars?

>> Can we make available electricity for free for anyone needing it?

>> Can we contribute to environmental and pollution global  monitoring systems?

>> Can we use the Energy_Animal for other purposes like creating data mesh network?
