Water Energy

Water energy is a renewable energy sources. A collection source of accurate information, articles, facts, news, opinions, tips and analysis on water energy and hydro power.

We all understand that any kind of energy, Renewable or not, has both pros and cons. In this article we list and briefly describe the pros and cons of Tidal Energy (Tidal Power). Tidal Energy is the renewable green energy source produced by capturing the power of the tides caused by the gravitational forces of […]

Wave Energy Pros and Cons

Wave Energy Pros and Cons

by Andy Goldman on January 21, 2013

Wave energy is a promising Renewable Energy Source, RES, and it is one of the two sources of Ocean Energy. A quick way to understand Wave energy is to go through the wave energy pros and cons so that we will get an understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of wave energy and be able […]

Hydroelectric energy is as we all understand one of the five forms of Renewable Energy Sources, RES, and as the current facts and figures indicate, Hydroelectric energy is the number one Renewable Energy Source. It is one of the 3 forms of water energy or hydro energy as it is otherwise known. The other two […]

Tidal energy is one of the five (5) Renewable Green Energy sources in the direction of which governments and institutions are looking in order to find solutions for their energy problems. Tidal energy is a clean and sustainable form of energy and there is evidence that it has been used by mankind for more than […]

The 6th International Tidal Energy Summit and Awards Ceremony will take place on 28-29th November 2012 at London, UK. This summit on one of the renewable green energy sources, Tidal Energy, is an event which will bring this sector’s stakeholders, service providers, device manufacturers and tidal device developers, under one roof.  

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. […]
