ABS Releases New Edition of Ocean Energy Report
If you're curious about the present state of ocean energy development, you might try purchasing a copy of ABS Energy Research's Ocean Energy Report, which was just released as announced in this Press Release at Renewable Energy Access. From the Press Release:
The report outlines these technologies, with their state of development as technologies and industries.
The status of each industry is described in each country where it has a base or is under trial.
A key fact now emerging is the need to transfer technology and know-how from the existing offshore industry to the new marine renewable energy industry. The offshore oil and gas industry has already contributed substantially to the development of offshore wind power technology (See ABS Wind Report). It is also becoming clear to many companies in the offshore oil & gas industry that with resource depletion, their future lies in a capability to diversify their skills and services into future renewable energy sources. This coincidence of needs is becoming a key driver to the development of marine renewables.
