Less Obtrusive Renewable Energy

Share This Post

As a sailor and one-time worker in GE Power Generation, I have always marveled at our inability to harness the power of the seas. It looks like technology is finally getting to the point where we may see it happen. I have seen predictive articles for years, but this one http://www.popsci.com/science/article/2013-05/future-energy-water shows some real promise and commitment. Imagine, unobtrusive, to us at least, power generation equal to 1/3 total US energy usage from the tides Рno dams, no fights over views, no waste. Time will tell what environmental impact studies will say about how these interact with fish and other sub-sea creatures, but it is very promising on the surface (literally!).
