Conversion of different types of biomass into bioenergy is usually performed using thermo-chemical conversions such as combustion, gasification, or pyrolysis.
The abundant solar energy available has the potential to provide the whole world with energy. Decarbonization and electrification are strong drivers for development and the solar power sector is currently growing exponentially.
Geothermal heat from below the Earth’s surface is a natural and renewable source of energy. Found around the globe and available year-round, this largely untapped renewable energy source offers a steady, predictable large-scale power generation.
Wind power is one of the fastest-growing renewable energy technologies and also one of the most mature technologies, originating back hundreds of years where settlers used the power of the wind for grinding grain and pumping water.
Salinity gradient power, osmotic power, or blue energy, is the energy available from the difference in salt concentration between fresh river water and seawater.
Corrosion is one of the main challenges the offshore renewable energy sector faces. It is a complex issue related to:
Ocean currents move slowly relative to typical wind speeds, but they carry a great deal of energy because of the density of water. Water is more than 800 times denser than air. So for the same surface area, water moving 12 miles per hour exerts the same amount of force as a constant 110 mph
Tidal range is the vertical difference in sea level between high and low tide and uses technology similar to the production of hydropower with a dam or barrage to impound a large volume of water.
Ocean thermal energy conversion ( OTEC ) uses the difference in temperature between cool ocean depths and warmer shallow or surface seawaters to run a heat engine and produce for example, electricity. It can operate with a very high capacity factor and is one of the continuously available
Our oceans can produce energy of two types: thermal energy from the heat of the sun and mechanical energy from the tides and waves. The oceans hold an immense amount of energy and are also close to very many large population centers. Ocean and marine energy has the potential to provide a
