They have done trials and say that the mats produce as much energy as wind farms.
I just love it when a good idea gets off the ground.
Just as I imagined it a while back, such a simple organic solution that was already there.
My Father was a Marine Engineer, and we did talk about all sorts of ideas. I love him very much, and if this is the way forward its a tribute to him, and the hours he spent imagining.
I used to watch him put three sugars in his tea and spend at least five minutes stirring it. One day I asked him what he was doing, and he said, 'Oh, just working something out'. My dad was a genius in his own right. I realise I am not like everyone else, neither was my dad, but I am pleased I am his daughter, and we had ways of communicating that were never verbal, but we just caught ideas off each other. I do miss him. Perhaps his ideas are still in my head.
