Watch: The design of world’s most powerful tidal turbine

The animation video unveils the design of a new tidal turbine, as part of the FloTEC project, funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. The Orbital O2 2MW, designed by Orbital Marine Power, is targeted to be deployed at EMEC in Orkney in 2020. The company believes that, when launched in 2020, it will be the most powerful tidal generating platform in the world.

Watch: New research to optimize floating renewables devices

Research at HR Wallingford, in collaboration with the Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory, has developed a toolkit which can be used to optimize the design of floating offshore renewable energy devices, by accurately simulating the response of these floating structures under realistic sea states.

Petrobras, Equinor assess offshore wind in Brazil

Brazilian energy major Petrobras (Petróleo Brasileiro S.A.) announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Norwegian oil major Equinor to evaluate a joint business development in the offshore wind energy industry in Brazil.

EU Commission greenlights next stage of EnFAIT tidal energy project

The European Commission has granted approval to the EnFAIT €20 million tidal energy project to proceed to its next stage, after a successful first year of design development and operations. The project aims to prove that the cost of tidal energy can be reduced by at least 40%.

Construction of first big US offshore wind farm to start in 2019

Avangrid and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners will develop an 800-megawatt offshore wind farm south of Martha’s Vineyard. This facility will save about $1.4 billion in a course of 20 years. Construction on the wind farm will start during 2019, and it is expected that it will start operation in 2021.

Second US offshore wind project closer to implementation

The Icebreaker Wind energy project proposed for Lake Erie has received a Section 401 water quality certificate of approval by Ohio’s Environmental Protection Agency, confirming compliance with marine pollution standards, and marking further a step towards the project implementation.

EU approves French support for tidal energy demonstration plant

The European Commission has approved a French project promoting electricity generation from tidal energy, which was found to be in line with EU State aid rules, while it is expected to contribute further the EU’s energy and climate goals without distorting competition in the Single Market.

New Jersey eyes offshore wind certificate funding mechanism

The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities proposed a rule that would establish an offshore wind funding mechanism known as an Offshore Wind Energy Certificate. The program intends to help the state reach its immediate goal of 1,100MW of offshore wind capacity and pave the way for the ultimate goal of 3,500MW.

10.2% of UK’s energy consumption came from renewables in 2017

In its ‘Energy Trends’ report for Q1 2018, the UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy said the country has made 15% progress in the target set under the 2009 EU Renewable Directive. Provisional calculations show that 10.2% of final energy consumption in 2017 came from renewable sources; up from 9.2% in 2016.
