2009 was a good year for the ocean energy sector with US $246 million invested in the sector, up from the 2008 figure. Key areas of development were wave energy, and tidal and marine current projects. For both sectors, more devices reached the prototype stage and were tested out at sea. Considerably more funding has been available for projects to take this leap.

Portugal and the UK remain as the main countries for wave energy projects due to generous grants and subsidies, targets and in the case of Portugal, a feed-in tariff. If the Scottish parliament passes a proposal for wave energy projects to receive five ROCs per MWh of electricity produced and three ROCs per MWh for tidal energy projects instead of two ROCs currently received across the UK, NRG EXPERT expects the bulk of UK projects to be developed there. Other countries making significant inroads in the sector last year include Australia, the US, New Zealand and other European countries, especially Ireland.

The most established wave energy developer is still Pelamis, with many companies not far behind. Larger players have started to show an interest in wave energy. Petrobras is developing a device in conjunction with COPPE/UFRJ. Airtricity, the Irish utility, has signed an agreement with Aquamarine Power to develop 1 GW of projects by 2020. Mitsui Engineering and Shipbuilding is planning to use Ocean Power technologies (OPT) devices to develop a 10 MW farm.

For tidal and marine current projects, most are being developed in the UK, the US, Canada, Austral-asia and other European countries. Utilities have started to show more interest in the sector, with several developing projects or buying devices from developers, notably Nova Scotia Power, Scottish Renewables, RWE Innogy and npower renewables. One utility, Alstom Hydro, went one step further and bought the worldwide licence for Clean Current Power Systems' tidal devices.

UK-based Marine Current Turbines continues to be the furthest along in terms of commercialisation; however, several developers are not far behind. For example, Hammerfast Strom has been operating a 300 kW for some time and has an agreement to supply devices for Scottish Renewables projects. Verdant in the US has signed a MoU with the China Energy Conservation Environment Protection Group (CECEP) to develop projects in the country.

Although tidal barrages and lagoons are the most mature technology, very little progress was made last year. A short list of five potential ‘Severn Tidal' projects was announced and a public consultation will be held this year. However, one of the most interesting developments was a proposal to combine a road bridge and a tidal barrage across the Duddadon Estuary in Cumbria in the UK. As this would shear seventeen miles off the existing journey between the towns of Barrow and Millom, it may be more acceptable to the public than a tidal project on its own. Thus reducing opposition to the devel-opment of the project. In the second half of this year completion of the Sihwa Lake Tidal plant in Korea is expected. It will have a larger installed capacity than the 240 MW La Rance power plant in France, currently the largest plant in operation.


Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is still a long way from commercialisation. DCNS, Lock-heed Martin and Xenesys have emerged as the main companies involved in OTEC projects. Last year Lockheed Martin was awarded an US $8 million component supply contract by the US military. NRG EXPERT expects military bases to be a major use of OTEC due to the high cost of diesel imports at remote island locations. Other major uses of OTEC, along with direct power use, may be desalination and sea water air conditioning.

By far the most experimental technology is still the salinity gradient. In November last year Statkraft commissioned a 2 to 4 kW prototype off Tofte near Oslo, Norway. This project is one of the relatively few salinity gradient projects, and is by far the most advanced. Thus it is unlikely that this will be a major source of power in the short term.
