Tidal, Hydro, etc UK: Project to help unlock potential of marine energy
posted by on Friday, October 30, 2009 - 08:31 AM

gfoat writes "£8 million project to help unlock potential of marine energy launched by The Energy Technologies Institute. An £8 million project that will produce tools capable of accurately estimating the energy yield of major wave and tidal stream energy has been approved by the Energy Technologies Institute.
Performance Assessment of Wave and Tidal Array Systems (PerAWaT), a project led by Garrad Hassan, and including EDF Energy, EON, the University of Edinburgh, the University of Oxford, Queen’s University Belfast and the University of Manchester will develop a series of models to predict the performance of wave and tidal stream generator arrays."

Tidal, Hydro, etc BWEA welcomes boost for new energy technologies
posted by on Monday, August 02, 2004 - 07:37 AM

gfoat writes "Not drowning but waving, Today's announcement by the Secretary of State Patricia Hewitt of a £50 million fund for the development of wave and tidal power technologies has been welcomed by the UK's leading renewable energy trade association. The British Wind Energy Association expanded its mission at the start of this year to champion the emerging marine energy technologies. These energy forms are complementary to wind, which is currently the most cost-effective source of renewable energy. While wind will be delivering the majority of the UK's renewable targets for the next few years, BWEA is looking forward to the time when it is joined by significant contributions from the new marine sources.

  • Tidal, Hydro, etc LATIN AMERICA: Renewable Energy Not Always Sustainable ?
    posted by on Friday, July 02, 2004 - 12:53 PM

    gfoat writes "10% renewable sources of energy, established as a worldwide goal for 2010, is already a reality in Latin America, but that has been achieved mostly through big hydroelectric dams, which certain environmentalists argue are not sustainable. What do you think? See the full article at Inter Press Service News "

    Tidal, Hydro, etc Scotland: Launch Of The Pelamis Wave Energy Converter
    posted by on Wednesday, March 24, 2004 - 09:43 AM

    gfoat writes "Following six years of detailed design and development, Ocean Power Delivery Ltd has completed the build of the first full-scale Pelamis Wave Energy Converter. Similar in size and rating to a modern wind turbine the Pelamis is designed to harness the energy contained in ocean waves to produce electricity. The machine is the world’s first commercial-scale floating wave energy converter. The 750kW Pelamis machine measures 120m long by 3.5m wide (about the size of four train carriages) and weighs 750 tonnes fully ballasted. The machine was 100% assembled and fabricated in Scotland with over 90% of the machine’s content being sourced from the UK. "
