About 80% of the world's total energy is powered by the nonrenewable sources of energy. Which implies that 80% of the world's electricity infrastructure is designed to work on nonrenewable systems. (G, Milena, and Matt L.) Introducing completely new renewable infrastructures for power generation will dump the present nonrenewable based power plants, which will inturn be a huge economic loss and also an environmental loss. But if the present systems are just modified to work on nonrenewable sources rather than complete replacement, then it can be a good benefit to both environment and the economy of the society. This project is an attempt to show such type of modification applied on a pedal boat, that transforms the boat to work on renewable source and it becomes more efficient and convenient system. The idea is further extending to show the innovations done in the present techniques that modifies the existing fossil fuel based systems and converts them into renewable based infrastructure.
