EBC Breakfast Program: Renewable Ocean Energy – Tides, Currents and Waves
June 3, 2009 @ 7:30 am - 10:00 am
Thank you to our Member Company, Foley Hoag LLP, for hosting this program at their facility.
Renewable energy from the ocean presents an opportunity to develop predictable, unlimited clean energy from the tides, currents, and waves. While some of the technologies employed are not unlike traditional turbine technology associated with hydropower, adapting such designs to the open water ocean environment is at a relatively early stage of technological development. This breakfast will provide participants with a snapshot of the state of the ocean renewable industry by focusing on projects currently being demonstrated in the Northeast.
