I like their design and the professional prototyping. The turbine can tap the huge energy potential of moving water in ocean currents without disturbing the marine eco-system. It can supply power constantly, 24/7/365
The Ocean Energy Turbine is important because it is the first renewable energy system designed to effectively harness ocean currents on a commercial scale. Globally, ocean currents can provide the power to completely replace the worlds dependance on fossil fuels and nuclear energy. The quantity of energy available from ocean energy greatly exceeds that of wind and solar. Ocean energy production is also a consistent reliable source of energy, whereas solar and wind power are limited by the availability of sun and wind.
