Title: Exploring Proof of Concept in Ocean Current Energy Extraction
University of California Riverside’s Ocean Energy team knows surfing and sailing in the ocean aren’t the only things that can light up your day. They are exploring the vast bodies of moving water in the ocean currents to generate electricity. With a farm of turbines placed underwater, they are adding a reliable steady source of clean energy to the nation’s renewable energy portfolio.
