EBC Renewable Energy Program: Marine Hydrokinetic Energy Development in New England
February 27, 2013 @ 8:30 am - 1:00 pm
Marine and hydrokinetic (MHK) technologies – which generate power from waves, tides or currents in ocean waters – are at an early but promising stage of development. Many coastal areas in the United States have strong wave and tidal resources close to areas with high-energy demand. With widespread deployment, these technologies could make substantial contributions to our nation’s electricity needs. With funding and technical assistance from the U.S. Department of Energy and landmark permits issued in 2012 by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), several U.S. companies are putting wave and tidal energy projects in the water that will generate clean electricity for thousands of homes and pave the way for continued industry growth. This EBC Program will present an update on MHK Projects that are being developed in New England and provide insight into what accomplishments are expected in coming years.
