For today’s post I have gathered latest news on a form of renewables we read too little about : marine energy. Given the astounding potential (240 GW by 2050), I believe it’s safe to say this will change as technologies mature.
” (…) Lockheed Martin is developing its portfolio. Indeed, the defence firm signed with the Australian company Victorian Wave Partners in February to engineer an ocean energy station off the coasts of Australia. “
” According to the agreement, Lockheed Martin will provide expertise in the design and production of the buoys and project management. “
Only two days after my first article on the various possibilities of harnessing a part of the tremendous energy from our oceans, GreenTech Media provides us with more on this topic.
This article focuses forecasting the future of this particular market segment. With less than 10 MW currently installed, experts believe installed power could reach a GW in only six years.
As you will see, wave energy is currently the most researched, and this even if tidal power provides serious advantages like an important predictability.
