With ideas and prototypes languishing, the U.S. is developing a wave energy converter challenge.
Seatricity says it will go to Wave Hub to test a wave-energy system that pumps pressurized water ashore; a 10-megawatt array is planned.
To make its SureDrive concept viable, an Australian company wants to turn floating oil rigs into wave energy absorbers. Call it RigDrive.
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.
Ocean Renewable Power Company got its own tidal power project into the water, and now it will work with RME to bring wave power to the town of Yakutat, Alaska.
Alstom calls 100 megawatt-hours of electricity sent onto the grid a milestone for its tidal stream turbine.
