Australia's Best Spots for Harvesting Wave Power Shown by New Study

The Australians have just evaluated their potential for producing wave-based energy, within an area stretching from Gerlandton in Western Australia to King Island in Tasmania, and found out that by only using 10% of this area's potential they could meed 50 percent of the entire country's need.

Scotland to Have World's Largest Tidal Power Farm

The Scottish Government is about to approve the world's largest tidal power project that will be built in the Sound of Islay. According to ScottishPower Renewables, the project is expected to cost about £40 million ($65 million) and will be capable of generating enough energy to power around 5,000 homes.

Wave Energy – Easy Free Energy Resource

The wave turbine is a free energy device and is presented here. How it works is very simple, as anyone can imagine. Waves hit...

Whales Inspiring Unconventional Type Of Underwater Turbines

Underwater turbines are one of the many alternative energy sources, a technology which has seriously challenged scientists since the beginning, due to the low velocity associated with many tidal flows and the difficulty of extracting useful energy from low speed flows using current designs.

WaveNET Floating Array Brings Back Hope in Wave Power

Although it has been around for quite a while, wave energy has not managed to compete with the big guys- wind and solar. The...

Oceanlinx Prepares to Deploy 2.5MW Tidal Power System Near Sydney

Engineers are performing the last tests and measurements before the grid-connection off the coast of Port Kembla, near Sydney. The system will be generating about 2.5MW by harvesting air pressure that will turn a wind turbine.

Aquabank – Underground Energy Storage and Production

Riverbank Power has developed a project that is of high interest. Water gathered in a bungalow on a river shore will fall in a 600m deep gallery where turbines are mounted. The water pressure will rotate the huge turbines which will create electrical power.

Wave Treader: Joining Wind and Wave Power

By combining wind and wave power, the energy output can be drastically increased. The Wave Treader that enables the mix-up will probably be available on the market by 2011.
