Japan is starting to flex increasing muscle in the offshore wind market, both through domestic technology development and international investment.
The UK and US will work together to develop "floating" wind turbines to harness more offshore wind power at a potentially lower cost, the UK Government said yesterday.
SEAGEN, a tidal device developed by Marine Current Turbines, has passed a significant milestone by generating its two-millionth unit of electricity to the energy grid in Northern Ireland. Said to be the world's first and only commercial-scale tidal-stream energy turbine, the 1.2MW device is located in Strangford Lough.
The UK's Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) has decided to award its first tranche of funding to four maritime energy projects - three offshore wind and one tidal technology.
