Offshore wind turbines are installed at sea. They work in exactly the same way as an onshore unit but use sea winds as a source of energy. They are also higher, which allows them to produce twice as much energy. This renewable energy is then redistributed to cities along the coast.
Today, 20% of the
world population still does not have access to electricity. However, energy
access is essential to fight against poverty and to develop socially and
economically countries and populations.
Tidal power is a type of renewable marine energy produced with underwater turbines called hydrokinetic subsea turbines. These turbines convert the energy of marine currents into electrical power in the same way as wind turbines (onshore or offshore) convert the energy of the wind.
