Plants for the Distributed Generation: marine energy

Energia dalle onde
by Maria Rosaria Barbato

In the last decade, new technologies have been developed to be installed in the marine environment, in order to produce electricity by exploiting the potential of waves, tides or currents. 

The sea offers many opportunities for the production of energy, some of which are distributed uniformly in our territory, while other are limited only in some areas. These can be summarized as follows: 

- Waves: kinetic energy transferred from the wind to the surface of the oceans; 

- Tides: the potential energy derived by the  lunar and solar gravitational attraction of the oceans; 

- Tidal currents: kinetic energy of marine currents derived by rising and lowering of the water column because of the tides; 

- Marine currents: kinetic energy of the currents due to the density difference between the water masses and / or the wind surface; 

- Temperature gradients: thermal energy derived from the temperature difference between the surface layers of the oceans directly heated by the sun and the deeper and cooler layers; 

- Gradient of salinity: osmotic power derived from the difference in salinity between the oceans and the fresh water present at the mouths of rivers. 

Although the detailed assessment of the marine energy resource is still at a preliminary stage, studies conducted by ENEA led to estimate that the theoretical potential energy of the sea in its various forms far exceeds the energy needs of the present entire world population. 

Italy, with its over 7000 km of coastline, may express an important role in the exploitation of the sea; the most interesting regions in terms of tidal currents are the Strait of Messina, which happens to be also the most "energetic", the lagoon of Venice, the Strait of Sicily and the Strait of Bonifacio in Sardinia. 

On the basis of the studies conducted on the devices currently installed worldwide, it is estimated that the energy conversion devices of the sea energy are characterized by low greenhouse gas emissions during the entire life cycle (construction, installation and maintenance) and that the environmental risks resulting from these technologies are relatively low. 

Furthermore, the exploitation of tidal currents offers the possibility to almost exactly asses the theoretical annual energy available at a site, overcoming the major limitation possessed by so-called "non programmable renewable sources".


We recommend this headset without plug ears, even more cool is that it uses your Red Bottom Shoes bones as a medium,UGG Boots Outlet it sounds cool!

This is also in Coach outlet line with the needs Christian Louboutin Shoes of current consumers.UGG Outlets Nowadays,Ray Ban Outlet young Japanese people think daily about being Sac Louis Vuitton really happy Burberry Outlet even when living in an apartment.Coach Factory Outlet They have to Adidas NMD constantly Christian Louboutin Outlet move for rent or have to resort to Kate Spade Outlet work transfer Yeezy Boost 350 v2 Re-investing Nike Hoodies energy to find Coach Outlet Online a home is a stressful life style for them, and it is also an urgent need to be addressed in the market.
People talk about the Kate Spade Outlet time of the Scarpe Nike Air Max Uomo island is static,Acheter Philipp Plein which is North Face Jackets relative to New Jordans their mood in the city under the tyranny of time.

Nice post

I have read the post, you have written about new techonologies which i like it a lot. I must say you have made a great effort in making this post which i like it alot. I have bookmarked the website to read more similar articles

These plants would surely

These plants would surely call for more efficient power generation. The website has been helping me out which is quite amazing and I've loved their power generation.

We can use the wave energy.

We can use the wave energy. this is limitless source of free energy but it has a really low output as best dissertation writers thinks.
