A new Swiss project is set to prove that nothing is impossible with a good set of batteries and a solar platform.
Project Goldfish aims to build a submarine powered with electricity obtained from solar power. The energy is captured and stored on a floating platform. This energy is then used to fill the submarine’s batteries, which has enough juice to go dive down to 200 meters in the waters of a Swiss lake. The submarine is set to start operations in 2012.
The project is sponsored by Swiss utility company BKW and they say that such a platform can and should be used to power houses and all sort of electric vehicles.
