  • Oceans of Energy

    Technologies that harness the energy of moving water or temperature differentials in the oceans promise to deliver abundant carbon-free electricity. Long before humans got hooked on fossil fuels, we learned how to harness the power of water to do work. Rivers ran mills that ground flour, sawed logs or spun looms that transformed fibers into textiles. Later generations realized that moving water ...

  • Renewable energy from the ocean and tides: A viable renewable energy resource in search of a suitable regulatory framework

    Ocean energy technology involves a range of engineering technologies that are able to obtain energy from the ocean using a variety of conversion mechanisms. Over the past few years there has been significant progress towards the development of commercial scale operations of ocean energy, especially hydrokinetic energy (where the energy of ocean (or fluvial) currents and tides is captured by ...

  • Reaching underground resources

    Accessing critical resources such as geothermal energy and natural gas requires drilling — an expensive, energy-intensive, messy process with today's technology. An MIT team has been looking into a more elegant approach. Instead of grinding rock to bits, they would use a continuous beam of energy to vaporize it and then blow out the tiny particles that form with a high-pressure stream of ...
