Marine Energy Resources
The natural movement of tidal and river currents, as well as the water flowing through existing manmade structures such as irrigation canals and dam spillways, holds the potential for significant clean energy generation worldwide.
Water resources can provide energy generation that is renewable, highly predictable, and sourced in close proximity to load centers. And, as many marine energy systems are oftentimes deployed fully under water, they do not create the viewshed interruptions and other NIMBY issues that arise with the construction of other energy facilities.
