ALL ENERGY - Aberdeen, May 2014

The future of clean sustainable marine  transport is electricity


The blue bird of happiness     





All-Energy Exhibition and Conference is the UK’s largest renewable energy event taking place in Europe’s energy city, Aberdeen, on 21-22 May 2014.

As a free-to-attend event, showcasing the complete range of renewable and sustainable technologies and with a world-class multi-stream conference alongside, All-Energy is where busy people come to do business.



Sir Richard Branson will speak at All Energy in May 2014





Sir Richard Branson is a last minute addition to the list of speakers at All-Energy 2014. The U.K.’s renewable energy exhibition and conference is being held at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC), May 21-22.

Speaking live from his renowned Necker Island base, Sir Richard will be joining the conference on Thursday, May 22, through the medium of Skype; his presentation will take place at the end of “Investing in the future – innovation” a session devoted to innovation in the offshore wind sector (Crombie B at AECC).

“Sir Richard may not be directly involved with offshore wind, but the fact that this session is being chaired by Calum Davidson, Highland and Islands Enterprise’s Director of Energy and Low Carbon was the deciding factor. The work on island energy systems undertaken by Sir Richard and The Carbon War Room makes Calum’s involvement particularly relevant,” says Judith Patten, 
All-Energy’s Conference Director.

“Earlier in the day, Peter Boyd, Chief Operating Officer, The Carbon War Room will be speaking in the Plenary Session at 09:15 with its theme ‘Taking a different view’. The Carbon War Room is a global nonprofit organization, founded by Sir Richard Branson and a team of like-minded entrepreneurs that accelerates the adoption of business solutions that reduce carbon emissions at gigaton scale and advance the low-carbon economy. The organization focuses on solutions that can be realised using proven technologies under current policy landscapes. Having Sir Richard with us later in the same day will give our audience a greater understanding of the work of the organization.”

The Carbon War Room identifies and works in sectors where emissions can be reduced profitably, and where there are barriers preventing greater adoption of low-carbon solutions.

Peter Boyd will be combining climate change and optimism in the same talk, airing the view that “solving climate change is the single biggest society opportunity on the planet today” and encouraging everyone in the audience “to grasp the opportunities and profit from it at the same time” ….. Two case studies of Carbon War Room's recent work highlight the opportunities and have resonance in Scotland as well as around the world – island energy systems, and fuel efficient shipping.


The All-Energy conference program begins with political keynote addresses by Rt Hon Alistair Carmichael MP, Secretary of State for Scotland and Fergus Ewing MSP, Minister for Energy, Enterprise and Tourism; and at lunch time on Day 1 includes The Great Debate, on the energy implications of the Scottish Independence Referendum between Fergus Ewing and Tom Greatrex MP, UK Shadow Energy Minister, and Chaired by Professor Sir Jim McDonald.




Year-on-year All-Energy provides an unparalleled opportunity to gain insight across all areas of the renewable energy industry.

Their multi-stream conference covers all renewable energy sectors and the challenges facing the industry, as well as associated issues such as grid, funding and increasingly important areas such as business energy efficiency.




The Call for Papers deadline has been extended until 6 January 2014. For inspiration you can download the 2013 conference programme and link to individual presentations. The full programme for 2014 will be available in early Spring.



Enercon flettner rotor cargo tanker


Of all the subject headings, there appears to be no speaker (slot) for zero carbon ships. The Enercon design study above is not zero carbon, but hybrid wind and solar powered ships could be if the necessary research is done to prove the concept.

TOPIC TRAILS - 12 sector trails were created with the aim of helping visitors to swiftly identify and connect with the exhibitors they need to see. For exhibitors, the trails bring visitors genuinely interested in their products/services directly to their stands.  “Trail maps” will be produced to guide visitors around the exhibition. In addition, the 3 trails exhibitors have selected will be displayed on the front of their stand, further helping visitors to find the companies in which they’re interested.

Transport - In the UK alone, transport represents 21% of total domestic emissions. Decarbonising transport now to help drive down air-polluting emissions is imperative to combat climate change and meet carbon reduction targets. This trail includes electric vehicles, biofuels, fuel cells and transport infrastructure. With greenhouse gas emissions from transport representing 21% of total UK domestic emissions, decarbonising transport is a major challenge for the UK.

A return to sails using autonomous management of sail booms has been proposed and investigated in several designs, the object being to eliminate manual trimming. Wing sails have been shown to work, but have never taken off. Though, recent proposals by Japanese ship builders include large sails on deck, a variation of the Walker wing-sail system. Rotary wings, or turbines is another area of harvesting energy from nature that is in its infancy, Solar power has been used to circumnavigate the globe, but at relatively slow speeds. Wave power is another area receiving renewed attention.





The EU is looking for proposals that will eventually give zero, or near zero emission ocean transport. Bluebird Marine Systems Ltd is looking for European partners to prove the concept of a zero emission hybrid vessel that harvests a mix of solar and wind energy to give cruising speeds that will be competitive against ships using expensive bunker fuels. Please contact us today if this is of interest to your organization.

Electric Superyachts are now possible that operate on nothing but energy harvested directly from nature. The above is a 50 ton ZCC yacht with a low frontal area and hyper efficient SWASH hull. This craft sports 40kW wind turbines and 300m2 of solar panels. The total energy harvesting capacity of this design is around 176kW (235hp). The hull is 50m (163ft) hull on the waterline, OAL is 56M (183ft). Cruise the Mediterranean virtually silently with no pollution and at vastly reduced cost. The sprint speed of this craft will be in the 20+ knot region. If this yacht had not been powered with free energy from nature, the cost of diesel fuel to operate continuously for a year would be approximately: .29gals/hp x 117 x 24 x 365 = $297,226.80 (£183,393.99) In ten years that would be $2.97M (£1.83M).
