CETO 6 Bringing Carnegie to the Front of Wave Power Technology
With our Earth’s surface roughly 71% covered by water, the need for hydro powered energy is something that seems more like reality, rather than...
VIVACE: Transforming Destructive Water Vibrations Into Electricity
VIVACE (Vortex Induced Vibrations for Aquatic Clean Energy) is a newly invented machine harvesting slow-moving ocean and river currents. A researcher from the University of Michigan has come up with the system that works like a fish, turning potentially destructive vibrations found in fluid flows into electricity.
New Underwater Turbines Use Shallow Water to Make Electricity
Seattle-based Hydrovolts Inc. has developed a new system which can be used to generate electricity from small, unassuming waterways such as irrigation canals, without the use of dams.
Wind/Wave Power Not Infinite and Not Renewable, German Scientist Claims
Wind power had always been considered our salvation from peril, our last and most accessible "renewable" resource on this planet. Well, Axel Kleidon, a scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry in Jena, Germany, has another theory: wind and wave power are not so renewable and infinite, after all.
Swing Door WaveRoller Generates Up to 300KW of Energy in the Surge Zone
One of the simplest ideas of harvesting the ocean power was developed by Rauno Koivusaari, a fin diver who got inspired by exploring the depths of the seas and lots of shipwrecks.
