Wing Waves: Harvesting Wave Power By Swinging Beneath The Surface

A wave power test plant has been deployed on Nov. 17 two miles offshore of Fort Pierce, Fla., and is now being tested by its designers, researchers from Florida Institute of Technology's College of Engineering. The power plant has been named "Wing Waves," and works by harvesting the elliptical motion of waves 30 to 60 feet deep, and converting it into electricity.

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.

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.

World's Biggest Tidal Power Plant Opened in South Korea

A few days ago, the President of South Korea, Lee Myung-bak has officially inaugurated what he claims to be the world's largest tidal power...

Florida Harvesting the Gulf Stream for Electricity and Hydrogen

Florida's needs of electricity have made scientists think about never energy solutions. The needs of 4-7 million homes are so big that conventional energy would be too expensive and pollutant to still be used.

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.

"Oyster" Device Harnessing Near Shore Wave Power

The Oyster is basically a steel oscillating wave surge converter. It is fitted with double-direction water pistons, deployed near-shore at depths of 10 to 12m. As waves activate it, the pump delivers high pressure water through a sub-sea pipeline straight to the shore, as seen in the picture above.

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.

Hydrostatic Turbines: a Concept That May Revolutionize How We Harvest Deep-Sea Waves

An interesting concept for producing energy has caught my eyes today, and I think it might even work. The devices that Phil Pauley conceived are called "Hydrostatic Turbines", and operate at high water depths.

SEADOG Uses Waves' Own Power to Desalinate Sea Water

A company called Renew Blue, Inc. will use wave power to run a desalination plant in Freeport, Texas. The resulted water will be finally put into corn-based biodegradable plastic bottles. The SEADOG power system is made from a buoy which puts in motion a piston mechanism that rotates a water wheel to generate electricity.
