Kepler Energy Limited, a development stage company, intends to develop and manufacture tidal turbines which will have the potential to harness tidal energy. The company was founded in 2010 and is based in the United Kingdom. Kepler Energy was established in 2010 to exploit, with an exclusive licence, an internationally patented 2nd generation tidal turbine developed from 2007 to 2010 by three senior academics at the University of Oxford Department of Engineering Science. Initial work focused upon establishing the performance characteristics of the rotor at 1:20 prototype scale, financed initially by the University, and then, for a second time, with more detailed instrumentation for stress and other measurements, financed by the Technology Strategy Board and by the company`s shareholders. Subsequent work has involved developing designs for full scale turbines, combined into tidal fences, undertaken with supply chain partners who are each leaders in the offshore and tidal energy arenas.
