Ocean Plastic Cleanup Project Is Better News Than You Might Think

September 18th, 2018 | by Michael Barnard

Boyan's vision could have fallen apart at multiple points over the past five years. Reisser's study or someone else's could have shown a much more even distribution of plastics through dozens of meters of water column. Plastics could have degraded more quickly in ocean water and sunlight. He could have failed to capture many people's imaginations

Welsh wave power company Marine Power Systems announced last week that it had successfully installed its prototype WaveSub wave energy converter at the English marine test centre FaBTest, marking another step in the evolution of the company's technology. 


100% Clean, Renewable Energy Is Possible, Practical, Logical — Setting The Record Straight

July 22nd, 2017 | by Karl Burkart

Since 2009, Mark Jacobson, Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford University and Senior Fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment and Precourt Institute for Energy, and more than 85 coauthors have written a series of peer-reviewed journal articles evaluating the scientific, engineering, and economic potential of transitioning the world’s energy infrastructures to 100% clean, renewable wind, water, and solar (WWS) power for all purposes by 2050, namely electricity, transportation, heating, cooling, and industrial energy uses


Wave Energy’s Potential For British Columbia

May 23rd, 2017 | by Roy L Hales

Since 2001, there have been several inquiries into the plausibility of harnessing the wave energy off Vancouver Island. So far, projects were rejected because of the associated costs. A new report from the University of Victoria’s West Coast Wave Initiative (WCWI) outlined wave energy's potential for British Columbia


UK Wind, Wave, & Tidal Companies Are Exporting Goods & Services Worldwide

April 25th, 2017 | by Joshua S Hill

A new report published this week by UK trade body RenewableUK shows that the country's wind, wave, and tidal energy sectors are exporting their goods and services to the world on a massive scale, highlighting the growing importance of these technologies and the potential windfalls for the UK if the Government bets heavily on these industries.


AquaHarmonics Awarded $1.5 Million Wave Energy Converter Prize

December 8th, 2016 | by Carolyn Fortuna

AquaHarmonics has won a $1.5 million grand prize to support the development of wave energy converters. The US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy announced the winner of the Wave Energy Prize, which is an 18-month design-build-test competition that assesses early stage wave energy technologies by comparing a wide range of device types and evaluating them against a threshold requirement for high energy capture
