Scientists have determined that the world's first tidal current energy turbine will not cause an environmental impact. SeaGen was lowered into place and bolted to the seabed in 2008 in Strangford Lough, one of the world's fastest tidal currents. However, questions were asked about what kind of environmental impact the device would have. Strangford Lough is one of Europe's most protect areas because it provides a unique habitat for marine and bird life. The location was chosen for...

By Jerry Harkavy EASTPORT, Maine - Workers spent the past winter tinkering with high-tech turbines slung beneath a barge in the cold waters off the Maine coast before getting them to produce a modest 20 kilowatts, enough electricity to power a half-dozen homes. Far from discouraged, Ocean Renewable Power Co. is spending the summer preparing to deploy larger turbines capable of producing up to 5 megawatts. Or, enough electricity to power 5,000 houses. Eventually, the company envisions...
