  • Nonrenewable energies come from combustion of coal, oil, and natural gas. Their creation took millions of years, and we are using it faster than it was produced and faster than it is being created. Renewable energies come from the sun. Collection is from natural occurrences. While the energy is free, it costs money to collect it.
  • Greenhouse gases threaten to increase the temperature of the Earth with long-term consequences. These are extremely lengthy processes, and there is debate about the cause and effects. Coal provides a cheap, efficient source of heat, but it creates pollutants and CO2 through its combustion. Developing countries such as India and China rely heavily upon coal and thus have high concentrations of pollution. Far more pollution is expected from them in the future unless they can be convinced that renewable energy is preferable.

    1. 1. “ It is pleasant, when the sea is high and the winds are dashing the waves about, to watch from shore the struggles of another.” Lucretius, 99-55 B.C. An Introduction to Wave and Tidal Energy Frank R. Leslie, BSEE, MS Space Technology 5/25/2002, Rev. 1.7; (321) 768-6629 Renewable Energy in (and above) the Oceans
    2. 2. Overview of Ocean Energy <ul><li>Ocean energy is replenished by the sun and through tidal influences of the moon and sun gravitational forces </li></ul><ul><li>Near-surface winds induce wave action and cause wind-blown currents at about 3% of the wind speed </li></ul><ul><li>Tides cause strong currents into and out of coastal basins and rivers </li></ul><ul><li>Ocean surface heating by some 70% of the incoming sunlight adds to the surface water thermal energy, causing expansion and flow </li></ul><ul><li>Wind energy is stronger over the ocean due to less drag, although technically, only seabreezes are from ocean energy </li></ul>1.0 020402
    3. 3. What’s renewable energy? <ul><li>Renewable energy systems transform incoming solar energy and its alternate forms (wind and river flow, etc.), usually without pollution-causing combustion </li></ul><ul><li>This energy is “renewed” by the sun and is “sustainable” </li></ul><ul><li>Renewable energy is sustainable indefinitely, unlike long-stored, depleting energy from fossil fuels </li></ul><ul><li>Renewable energy from wind, solar, and water power emits no pollution or carbon dioxide </li></ul><ul><li>Renewable energy is “nonpolluting” since no combustion occurs (although the building of the components does in making steel, etc., for conversion machines does pollute during manufacture) </li></ul>1.1 020302
    4. 4. Renewable Energy (Continued) <ul><li>Fuel combustion produces “greenhouse gases” that are believed to lead to climate change (global warming), thus combustion of biomass is not as desirable as other forms </li></ul><ul><li>Biomass combustion is also renewable, but emits CO2 and pollutants </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Biomass can be heated with water under pressure to create synthetic fuel gas; but burning biomass creates pollution and CO 2 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Nonrenewable energy comes from fossil fuels and nuclear radioactivity (process of fossilization still occurring but trivial) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Nuclear energy is not renewable, but sometimes is treated as though it were because of the long depletion period </li></ul></ul>1.1 020402
    5. 5. The eventual decline of fossil fuels <ul><li>Millions of years of incoming solar energy were captured in the form of coal, oil, and natural gas; current usage thus exceeds the rate of original production </li></ul><ul><li>Coal may last 250 to 400 years; estimates vary greatly; not as useful for transportation due to losses in converting to liquid “synfuel” </li></ul><ul><li>We can conserve energy by reducing loads and through increased efficiency in generating, transmitting, and using energy </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiency and conservation will delay an energy crisis, but will not prevent it </li></ul>1.1 020402

Economics <ul><li>Cost of installation, operation, removal and restoration </li></ul><ul><li>Compare cost/watt & cost/watt-hour vs. other sources </li></ul><ul><li>Relative total costs compared to other sources </li></ul><ul><li>Externality costs aren’t included in most assessments </li></ul><ul><li>Cost of money (inflation) must be included (2 to 5%/year) </li></ul><ul><li>Life of energy plant varies and treated as linear depreciation to zero </li></ul><ul><li>Tax incentives or credits offset the hidden subsidies to fossil fuel and nuclear industry </li></ul><ul><li>Environmental Impact Statements (EIS) require early funding to justify permitting </li></ul>1.3 020402
    8. 8. Ocean Energy <ul><li>The tidal forces and thermal storage of the ocean provide a major energy source </li></ul><ul><li>Wave action adds to the extractable surface energy </li></ul><ul><li>Major ocean currents (like the Gulf Stream) may be exploited to extract energy with underwater rotors (turbines) </li></ul><ul><li>The oceans are the World’s largest solar collectors (71% of surface) </li></ul><ul><li>Thermal differences between surface and deep waters can drive heat engines </li></ul><ul><li>Over or in proximity to the ocean surface, the wind moves at higher speeds over water than over land roughness </li></ul>2.0 020329
