Providing baseload renewable electricity, marine energy solutions are an ideal complement to balance small or independent grid systems. With little to no visual impact on the landscape, the touristic value of the environment is preserved. For remote communities, marine energy technologies also offer solutions for the need for air conditioning and fresh water, using deep seawater being brought onshore via the ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) process. In many cases, installations make use of the local economy and skills.
What we offer
For powering small-scale grids with marine energy solutions we offer knowhow on risk assessment, business case (via our MulitORE model) and permits required to start energy projects at off-grid locations. Our GROWTH model can help to forecast the amount of installations and their expected costs for offgrid solutions.
