  • Marine cultivation technology opening the door to the rich sources of clean energy in our oceans

    Despite the growing demand and supply of renewable energy sources, we still rely on fossil fuels for much of our global energy. But deep below the ocean, there is a source of clean carbon energy waiting to be harvested, which will go a long way to reducing our dependence on oil, gas and coal – seaweed. A recent study in Nature Geoscience estimated that seaweed floating down to ...

  • Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion Coming To An Island Near You

    Ocean Thermal Energy (OTE) Corporation may be landlocked in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, but that isn’t stopping them from looking to the ocean for 24/7 electricity. Their primary technology is Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC), which uses the temperature differentials in the ocean to produce steam. The steam, in turn, activates a turbine, which generates clean energy and potable water. ...

  • Department Of Energy awards $18 million to algae biofuel projects

    On July 9, 2015, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced $18 million in funding for six projects to develop bioproducts and biofuels from algae. The funding is intended to reduce the cost of algae-based biofuels to less than $5 per gasoline gallon equivalent (gge) by ...

  • Renewable, local power options expand

    It makes no economic sense to run more than one set of wires from electric power generators to homes and businesses. That’s why consumers haven’t had a choice about the source of their electric power – whether it be an investor-owned utility (IOU), municipal utility or electric cooperative. Enabling consumers to choose between competing energy providers is a paradigm shift, and ...

  • 2014 JRC Ocean Energy Status Report

    Abstract Oceans and seas have the potential to play a significant role in providing clean energy. Different technologies are currently being developed to ensure a long term contribution of ocean energy to the future energy system. Among the different ocean energy technologies, tidal and wave conversion systems are expected to contribute the most to the European energy system in the short ...

  • Earthy, solaris and atmospheric energy sources

    Earth, sun and atmosphere are the ultimate energy resources. In addition to fossil fuels, earth radiates over 45 TW geothermal energy. Sun radiates about 89 PW energy to earth's surface. Lunar gravity supplies over 100 GW tidal ocean energy. Accessible energy from geothermal, solar, tides, waves and winds is far more than our current 17 TW energy demand, yet there are new avenues like tornadoes ...

  • Ocean Thermal Energy conversion and the company bringing it to market: peace for our children

    Two centuries ago, U.S. President John Adams advised us of the importance of observing our world with clear eyes, “Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes and passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.” Though there are some facts we all would rather not face, one of those unpleasant truths is that there are places in the world where the need for ...

  • Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation and Alden complete DOE-funded environmental feasibility study of OTEC in Hawaii

    The U.S. Department of Energy recently released the final report for an OTEC project titled “The Potential Impacts of OTEC Intakes on Aquatic Organisms at an OTEC Site under Development on Kauai, HI”. OTE Corp and Alden were the principal investigators and Tenera Environmental and AECOS assisted with the fieldwork and processing of the samples. The report includes both an evaluation ...

  • Ocean Thermal Energy and Water Production

    Introduction The scarcity of potable water is a growing problem worldwide, particularly in arid regions and among developing countries. Compounding this problem is the increasing contamination of freshwater sources, which comprise only about 2.5% of all water on Earth. Of this small portion, only 0.5% of the total fresh water available is found in easily accessible sources such as ...

  • Ocean Thermal Energy conversion and the company bringing it to market: clean water for our children

    Water is the most life sustaining resource on earth. Essential to all aspects of our human lives, it serves as the key ingredient in food and drink, helps us fabricate clothes, landscapes our favourite places, drives economic growth and feeds agricultural development. Our bodies themselves are 70% water. This liquid of life keeps us hydrated, catalyses crucial chemical reactions within our cells ...

  • Oceans of Energy

    Technologies that harness the energy of moving water or temperature differentials in the oceans promise to deliver abundant carbon-free electricity. Long before humans got hooked on fossil fuels, we learned how to harness the power of water to do work. Rivers ran mills that ground flour, sawed logs or spun looms that transformed fibers into textiles. Later generations realized that moving water ...

  • Zero emissions day: What it is and why we need it

    Today is September the 21st – a day that didn’t hold any particular significance until a simple observation occurred in the 1980’s. Ken Wallace, father of a newborn daughter, realized, after witnessing the local neighborhood pizzeria truck, parked, running and driverless, combined with the surrounding traffic that “Stopping all this for a bit would be most excellent for ...

  • A binary ACO for controlling all–electric power take off system in wave energy converters

    This paper describes a metaheuristic algorithm for controlling all–electric power take off (PTO) system of wave energy converters. It provides optimal parameter values to the controller following the instantaneously changing sea state. The output of the algorithm is used to tune the electrical control systems in the PTO system in order to provide sufficient time for the point absorber to achieve ...
