Lecture

Local event icon image

Tidal energy presents one of the most exciting emerging forms of renewable energy. Unlike many other forms of renewable energy, tidal energy is a consistent source of energy caused by regular tidal cycles

Date and Time

About this event

The talk will introduce tidal stream energy, tidal resource and provide a brief summary of emerging technology. Using specific examples, some of the issue of designing robust industrial turbines that are required for the commercial success of this emerging market will be discussed. In addition experience from building and operating MCT’s existing tidal devices will be presented along with future plans for small arrays and the design of the new 2.0MW SeaGen device.

Conference - Wed 30 April 2014 at 09:00

A great opportunity for industrialists to hear from, and speak directly with, a broad spectrum of their end-users, and offer academics working in this field a platform from which to present their short to near-term future technology developments.
