Marine Energy Device Mooring and Foundation Designs

by Cassandra Burgess

The deployment of marine renewable energy (MRE) devices requires new approaches to offshore mooring and foundations. Mooring and foundations are essential components of MRE device structures, enabling a device to remain in one spot while responding to the movement of tides or waves. 500 more words

Why is the development of wave energy converters so challenging? Part 2: Extracting energy from waves

So, how exactly can we exploit this resource?

The Wave Energy Prize received technical submissions detailing 66 unique WEC concepts.

A very small number of these couldn’t work, but the overwhelming majority were concepts that could exploit, to differing degrees, the fluid motions of water particle motions. 1,100 more words

Hawaiian Wave Power

Technologies for solar and wind power are maturing and stabilizing. Innovations will happen; but, the existing technologies suffice. Tidal and wave power have great potential because tides and waves happen throughout the day and night, and because 50% of Americans live within 50 miles of the coasts. 70 more words
