UK scientists will measure the effect on the marine environment and wildlife of devices that harness tide and wave energy using sonar technology that has, for the first time, been successfully deployed on the seabed. Renewable energy from tidal currents can be generated using turbines in the tidal flow, and wave energy can be captured in a number of different ways. FLOWBEC (Flow and Benthic Ecology 4D) is a three-year, £1.2 million project that brings together a consortium of...

Marine energy doubled by predicting wave power

DM Crumbliss for redOrbit.com Energy generated from ocean waves could provide power for our growing planet. Marine energy is believed to have the potential to provide the UK with electricity twice over, and a group of scientists have made a strong step in that direction by predicting wave power. The study was carried out by a team of mathematicians and engineers from the University of Exeter and Tel Aviv University. They devised a means of accurately predicting the power of the next...

Sea waves are a renewable and inexhaustible resource found in abundance across the planet. But efficiently converting sea wave motion into electrical energy has been challenging, in part due to the difficulty of compensating for the relatively low speeds and irregular movements of ocean waves. Researchers from the University of Beira Interior in Portugal have designed and simulated a new energy conversion device that addresses both these challenges (i.e., low speed and irregular movements)....

Energy Producing "Aquatic Bicycle Pump" Trial Forthcoming
2012-01-23 12:24:52

A trial version of a machine that can generate electricity from seawater could be in place in one UK city before the end of the year, BBC News reported on Monday. The device in question is the Searaser machine, which Damian Carrington of The Guardian referred to as a sort of "aquatic 'bicycle pump'." It was invented by a Devon man named Alvin Smith and has been purchased by Ecotricity, a green energy company headquartered in Stroud, Gloucestershire, England. Searaser does not generate...

Eco Wave Power has completed the construction and testing phase of its' first sea wave energy generation models the "Wave Clapper" and the "Power Wing". (PRWEB) December 29, 2011 The testing took place in the wave pool of the Hydro-Mechanical National Institute of Kiev. The “wave pool”, 2.5 meters deep, and 18 meters in length, had provided Eco Wave Power with the perfect conditions for testing of the unique wave energy generation technologies under controlled wave heights and...


Word of the Day
endocarp
  • The hard inner (usually woody) layer of the pericarp of some fruits (as peaches or plums or cherries or olives) that contains the seed.
This word comes from the Greek 'endon,' in, within, plus the Greek 'kardia,' heart.
