Online PR News – 02-October-2009 – – Ocean waters cover over 70% of the earth and present significant opportunities for renewable energy systems. Ocean Energy Technologies and Components Worldwide contains comprehensive data on the U.S. and world market for the three primary Ocean Energy Technology systems: Tide Energy, Wave Energy and Ocean Thermal Energy. The report also addresses the emerging potential of Salinity Gradient systems. The report identifies key trends affecting the marketplace, along with trends driving growth, and also profiles major domestic and global marketers and geographic hot spots for ocean energy technology implementation.
This study presents a comprehensive overview of the growing market for ocean energy technologies in the United States and throughout the world. Falling within the parameters of this study are all ocean energy technology systems and products. This study includes both public and privately funded systems that are in development or have already been installed. This study also includes emerging systems that are in the early development stages.
Global energy consumption amounts to over 17,400 Terawatt hours per year, with United States’ use alone accounting for approximately11,200 Terawatt hours per year. Ocean energy technology has the potential to generate over 93,100 terawatt hours/year with the two most viable options being wave technology and thermal gradient technology. Wave Energy technology alone has the potential to produce up to 80,000 TWH/year, while OTEC could produce up to 10,000 TWH/year. Salinity Gradient technology, still an emerging science, has the potential to produce 2000 TWH/year. Given the Obama administration’s commitment to green technology and renewable energy alternatives, the outlook for 2009-2010 is very positive for increased investment in both domestic and global ocean energy developments.
In September 2008, New York City installed the first Tidal-Power Turbine system in the United States. As part of a plan for New York to generate up to 80% of the city’s power from renewable energy sources, the completed Tidal-Power Plant is expected to provide power for up to 10,000 households. New York’s Tidal-Power program shows how ocean energy technology is quickly catching up to the more familiar renewable wind and solar power sources.
In Aguçadoura, Portugal, the successful installation of the world’s first multi-unit wave farm will generate 2.5 MW, enough to power 1500 homes. The wave tidal energy market alone could be worth over $280 billion per year. In Hawaii, Taiwan Industrial Technology has entered into collaboration with Lockheed Martin to develop a 10MW Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) pilot plant.
Within the United States, Maine and Alaska offer the best conditions for tidal power plants, while Hawaii and the Atlantic coast have the tropical conditions required for Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion. Recent tests along northern California’s Redwood Coast indicate that the west coast could be an ideal area for testing wave energy systems. While the U.S. is among the global leaders in Ocean Wave and Tidal Current developments, the U.K. dominates the field as of 2008. India and Japan are the global leaders in Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion, while Mexico and Norway are among the initial investors in Salinity Gradient systems.
