Ocean Energy

Ocean energy is energy from the ocean such as wave energy; learning accurate information, articles, news, opinions, tips and analysis on ocean energy and wave power.

Tidal Energy is the energy produced from the tidal power, which is nothing else than the power of a tide. Tidal Power is more predictable than the other two major renewable energy sources, solar power and wind power. Facts about Tides, the sources of Tidal Energy Tides are simply the rise and fall of water […]

After reading the recent article Introduction to Wave Energy Converters one question which comes to mind is: How do you choose the location of a Wave Energy Converter, WEC? What are the factors which should be taken into consideration when choosing the WEC location? The answer to these questions is important for the Wave Energy […]

Wave Energy, as the name implies, is the energy of the waves, captured and converted into useful energy. Wave energy conversion is done with the aid of Wave Energy Converters, WECs. There are different types of Wave Energy Converters and these are used accordingly based on the requirements, location and magnitude of the specific project. […]

Ocean Energy is one of the renewable energy sources, RES. It is further divided into 4 categories with the two main categories being, Wave Energy and Tidal Energy. Inspired by the two recent articles recently posted about the International Conference on Ocean Energy,

The 4th International Conference on Ocean Energy, ICOE, will take place in Dublin on October 17th-19th 2012. This conference is which will take place at the Convention Center Dublin is organized by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland, SEAI, in association with the European Ocean Energy Association and comes only a few weeks after EU’s […]

The Ministers responsible for the Integrated Maritime Policy of the European Union member states have on October 7th 2012 and have agreed among other things to promote renewable energy sources, RES, the Blue Economy and Blue Energy.

Tidal Energy is one of the Renewable Energy Sources, RES,  and together with the Wave Energy are the two forms of the Ocean Energy Renewable Source. In short, Tidal Energy is the energy captured from the tides in the oceans and seas which are caused by the gravitational forces of the moon, primarily, and of […]
