The U.K. puts money behind Minesto’s “Deep Green” project, which aims to use a turbine-loaded kite zipping around underwater to produce energy.
Tidal stream energy development might have its best chance of going big-time with the MeyGen Project in Scotland.
Clean Reach hopes to address one of the largest challenges facing wave and advanced tidal energy: access to adequate funding.
Minesto deploys a scale model of “Deep Green,” featuring a turbine on a winged device that swooshes around underwater, grabbing slow-flowing tidal power.
Taking advantage of a feed-in tariff aimed at small, local projects, an in-stream tidal power fund in Nova Scotia is revving up.
It’s not just about wind for Iberdrola, which is partnering with Alstom on tidal power in Scotland and also backing HiWave, a new wave power concept.
Researchers tinker with how best to arrange tidal sails, a new method for harnessing tidal power being developed in Norway.
The US focuses a new round of marine energy funding on better power take-off systems, but also puts $2.4 million into researching the environmental impact of development.
Senators Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) introduce a bill to encourage wave and tidal energy development and streamline the regulatory process.
Alstom says its 1-megawatt tidal turbine hit its nameplate power capacity in recent testing as marine energy activities surge in Scotland.
