Scotland passes turbine test to harness tidal power
Island channel could power about half of Scotland, study shows
Renewable tidal energy sufficient to power about half of Scotland could be harnessed from a single stretch of water off the north coast of the country, engineers say.
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.

Triton: A subsurface ocean?
Neptune's largest moon Triton is most likely a captured Kuiper Belt Object. The capture of icy Triton and the subsequent taming of its orbit likely led to the formation of a subsurface ocean through tidal ...
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 ...

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 ...
New research to support the huge potential of tidal power
(Phys.org)—New research from a global group of scientists and engineers, including from the University of Southampton, has been published in a special issue journal of the Royal Society. The work is in support of tidal ...
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.

Assessing the environmental effects of tidal turbines
Harnessing the power of ocean tides has long been imagined, but countries are only now putting it into practice. A demonstration project planned for Puget Sound will be the first tidal energy project on the ...
Composites for energy
Advanced composite materials are playing a vital role in improved design and reduced operating costs for renewable energy technologies. Research presented today will highlight how wind, marine and solar power could address ...
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 ...
