Renewable Ocean Energy

As we continue to look at options to move away from conventional oil and gas resources to renewables, our interest is turning seaward, unlocking the vast potential that our ocean might provide by harnessing wave, tidal, and offshore wind resources.

These all have a common challenge: how to move forward from diesel-based generation to renewable and sustainable ocean energy power production, both at large scale as well as for remote and island applications.
