Ocean mavericks in Maine turn tide for electrical grid
A better water wing to harvest tidal energy
(Phys.org) —The eternal ebb and flow of tides—24 x 7 x 365—makes them a dependable source of energy, but how to harness all that, especially in shallow water? Shreyas Mandre and colleagues at Brown ...

Harnessing tidal energy
A new company, Kepler Energy Limited, has been formed to develop a tidal turbine which has the potential to harness tidal energy more efficiently and cheaply, using a device which is simpler, more robust and ...
India aims for Asia's biggest tidal power plant
The western Indian state of Gujarat is aiming to host the first commercial-scale tidal power project in Asia after signing a deal with a British marine energy company, officials said Wednesday.
Firms see tidal energy as wave of future
Moored in the channel, the little gray barge strains against a raging morning tide. The torrent soon will drain nearby rocky inlets and fishing harbors by 20 feet - as high as a two-story house - only to flood them again ...
Whale-inspired ocean turbine blades
Interest in developing alternative energy sources is driving the consideration of a promising technology that uses underwater turbines to convert ocean tidal flow energy into electricity.
Comprehensive protection required to save Hector's dolphin
(Phys.org) —New Zealand's heavily endangered Hector's dolphin population could recover if protection measures were extended out to 100m deep throughout its habitat, according to a new University of Otago ...
Scientists predict sea states for renewable energy
Tidal and wave technology is finally coming of age and the UK leads the world in the development of this vital renewable energy resource. Bangor University is playing a crucial role in this: as the industry ...
