Rising ocean waters from global warming could cost trillions of dollars | John Abraham

We’ll need to mitigate and adapt to global warming to avoid massive costs from sea level rise Ocean waters are rising because of global warming. They are rising for two reasons. First, and perhaps most obvious, ice is melting. There is a tremendous amount of ice locked away in Greenland, Antarctica, and in glaciers. As […]

California Takes Up Ocean Wind Energy After Oregon Project Fails

Renewable energy developers are taking a second chance on an ocean wind project off the West Coast. They're planning a floating array of wind turbines in Northern California. View full post on Wind Power News

Race is on … for next ocean wind farm

Rewind five or six years, and developers up and down the East Coast were competing against each other to reach a milestone known in their industry as “steel in the water.” The pack included Bluewater Wind, which was touting a project off the Delaware coast, Fishermen's Energy, with a pair of proposals in New Jersey, […]

Ocean City Gets another Wind Farm Proposal

It is likely in the next ten years there will be a wind energy farm off the coast of the Eastern Shore. But where it goes and how it will affect the area is still up in the air. View full post on Wind Power News

What’s New in Efforts to Generate Electricity from Ocean Waves?

Wave power advocates cheered in September 2016 when Hawaii-based Naval researchers started feeding power from two experimental offshore wave energy devices into the grid on nearby Oahu, representing the first time the American public could access electricity derived from ocean waves. The trickle of energy from these experimental devices doesn't amount to anything substantial yet, […]

UMaine dedicates ocean engineering lab for wind energy testing

The lab will be used to test offshore wind turbines and similar structures, and provide facilities for thermoplastic composites research and development. During a laboratory dedication at the University of Maine on Nov. 23, the Harold Alfond Foundation announced a $3.9 million grant to the University of Maine to match $9.98 million already raised, formally […]

California’s first ocean wind farm in the works

This sleepy coastal town of 10,000 people along California’s Central Coast is known for its fishing fleet, nearby Hearst Castle and Morro Rock, a craggy 581-foot-tall monolith that dominates the views to the ocean. In a venture that could pit the state’s commitment to green energy against its famed coastal environmental movement, a Seattle company […]

Re: Deep Ocean?

DougInRB, The wind power farms that I’m aware of are currently located in coastal waters. Terrorists could certainly attack an offshore wind farm, but it doesn’t seem a particularly tempting target – out of the public view, no chance of large numbers of casualties, very little toxic impact, etc. View full post on Wind Power […]

Ocean advocates blast sonic cannon tests

SATELLITE BEACH, Fla. – They prefer “spin baby spin” to “drill baby drill” off Florida’s East Coast – wind turbines, that is, not oil rigs. View full post on Wind Power News
