Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    The Power Of The Oceans

    Harnessing the Oceans; Is energy from the oceans even feasible?

    Hans Buitelaar, May 13, 2016 (The Maritime Executive)

    “If saving the planet is not enough reward for harvesting the enormous energy potential of the oceans, high profits on renewable energy installations might be the incentive that makes investors open their wallets…Offering strong currents, big temperature differences, ongoing wave motion on the surface and lots of open area over which winds can develop, the world’s oceans offer a variety of energy sources and the potential for extensive involvement by the maritime industry…Ninety percent of the world's offshore turbines are along the northern European coasts, close to large population centers…[and] large-scale offshore wind parks are installed or under construction all along the coast of Asia…China ranked fourth in global offshore wind, following the U.K., Germany and Denmark. Total global capacity currently stands at 12,105 MWs…Around 20,000 MWs of wave and tidal stream energy installations are expected by the early 2030s…[and] capacity should grow to 100,000 MWs by 2050…[T]he energy potential of the oceans is calculated to be 20,000–80,000 terawatt-hours (TWhs) of electricity, generated by changes in ocean temperatures, salt content, and the movements of tides, currents, waves and swells…” click here for more
