marine-energy-3The world’s oceans absorb and produce vast amounts of energy that are virtually untapped by current technology—including offshore wind, tidal streams, wave energy, biomass, thermal conversion, and more. Marine power is a clean, renewable energy source that holds great promise for helping to reduce the greenhouse gases emitted during power generation. But the development and deployment of technologies to harness this power hinges on the development of successful cross-country partnership efforts, climate change policies, and technology advancements.
