    If there ain't coming a hyperloop between China and Europe and containerships will become electric, north Africa and the middle east could become uncredebly rich in no time with solar energy very soon.

    If they can get it all financed perhaps. But how long to earn back your panels, even at the equator?

    Panels are uncredebly cheap right now, even in Rotterdam you will get your money back within 10 years

    You'll probably never get rich, but eventually you will probably end up less poor

    I wish that upon Africa. World bank should offer non-strangle credit to build some crazy intercontinental solar farms.

    Transport of electricity also costs money, also note that earthplates might make it harder to make a cable between Europe and Africa.
    Selling electricity to containerships should be easely possible somehow

    Container ships need less in energy than they carry goods. But it's a start.
    At Gibraltar the crossing is not so long.
    Tesla used to have a solution to power transmission over distance. He didn't explain it to others very well.

    But they do need to travel 10.000 miles and more, move day and night, so once they need to refuel, they can suck up quite a bunch of energy, green energy can probably be charged up the cheapest in north Africa and that's exactly the place many ships travel around.
