Oceanlinx Harvesting Australian Wave Power Very Efficiently

Oceanlinx has started since few years ago a renewable energy project based on wave energy. The device is a Oscillating Water Column which was first deployed in 2005 but this had undergone planned refurbishment and modifications this year. Today the device is again up and running and can generate from 100 Kw up to 1.5 MW, depending on the waves and requirements from consumers.

Sailing Ships to Produce Hydrogen Onboard With Oceans' Energy

Scientists at the University of California Davis are working to develop a technology that will allow sailing ships to generate electricity from the ocean while they are far from the shores. This fleet of sailing ships would then turn wind power into hydrogen, which would be stored onboard, to be unloaded later and used.

HydroWing – Tethered Tidal and Marine Current Energy Generator

The SeaKinetics company recently has developed an innovative, tethered tidal and marine current energy generator known as the HydroWing, that is capable to provide zero carbon emission renewable energy by converting tidal power into clean electricity.

SAROS, Portable Desalination Plant Powered by Waves

SAROS is one of a kind, portable desalination plant, which converts sea water into drinking water, powered by sea waves. With climate change taking its...

Renewable Hydrokinetic Energy Could Meet 10% of U.S. Electricity Needs, Study Says

The newest affordable clean energy source that scientists have laid eyes on is the one provided by hydrokinetic systems such as ocean waves and free-flowing rivers. Researchers estimate that this â€Ã…“fresh” source of energy could supply electricity to meet up to 10% of America's power needs.

DIY: How to Make a Wave Powered Boat

You may use small wood boards, or toy boats "borrowed" from your kids. Or as well you may teach your little ones how to build a free energy device.

World’s First Artificial Tidal Lagoons to Get Built in UK

The UK might soon be the first in the world to have artificial tidal lagoons, which will generate clean power by harnessing energy from...

Make Waves with an Open Source Tidal Power Simulator

This is probably news for geeks, but have you ever considered developing your own wave power generator? If what is holding you back is...

An Interesting Approach to a Wave Powered Electricity Generator

I received a message today from a reader suggesting a particular website. I read the information on that particular website, and there was presented a hybrid energy producing system by using the waves as a "catalyst" for the operation of a diesel-powered generator.

Tidal Power May Become Major United Kingdom Energy Source

According to a report in the journal Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A, estuary barges and tidal streams might be able to provide...
