  • The future of Solar Power

    When you think of renewable energies, what do you think of? Hydro power? Wind energy? In fact, they have proven to be the most popular in recent years. Hydro power in its current form is the cheapest of the renewable energies. Wind power is the fastest growing. However, there is a renewable energy that is far more versatile ...

  • Tidal power - A different perspective

    Kepler Energy is taking a different approach to tidal power, applying a design that can be used in benign sea conditions in a location closer to end-demand and which could generate utility-scale quantities of power, as Peter Dixon explains.The physical environment of tidal turbines is clearly very different to that of wind turbines, not least because water is a lot denser than air! However, ...
