Variations in nearshore wave power at four shallowwater locations along the east and west coast of India are examined based on the measured wave data for one-year period. The study shows that along the west coast of India, 83–85% of the annual wave power is during the summer monsoon period (June–September), whereas at Visakhapatnam (on the east coast), 55% of the annual wave power is during the summer monsoon period. Along Puducherry coast in the east, wave power is relatively less with maximum value of 31.8 kW m–1.

Without a sufficient level of support from the Government, Britain risks surrendering its world lead in marine energy, according to a report released today by RenewableUK.

The renewable energy companies competing for the £10m Saltire Prize will be announced by the Scottish government later.

The installed capacity of the UK's wave and tidal sector has grown 40-fold in the past ten years. Ministers expect similarly impressive growth by 2020. But to achieve this, the country needs arrays.

In 2002, countries met in Johannesburg, South Africa for the 10th anniversary of the first Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Britain must not lose its lead in the development of marine energy like it did with wind power, and should focus on reducing costs and setting ambitious deployment targets beyond 2020, a report by

Power Minister Sushilkumar Shinde on Wednesday said India must develop its hydroelectric, thermal and alternative sources of energy in response to a growing coal shortage.

In this article, an attempt is made to answer the question: Can renewable energy sources eventually supply India’s electricity needs in the future? The estimates made here indicate that even with a frugal per capita electricity need of 2000 kWh/annum and a stabilized population of 1700 million by 2070, India would need to generate 3400 TWh/yr. As opposed to this, a systematic analysis of the information available on all the renewable energy sources indicates that the total potential is only around 1229 TWh/yr. It is concluded that in the future as fossil fuels are exhausted, renewable

The future of the world’s biggest wave energy project has been cast into doubt after RWE, the German utility, pulled out of the Siadar scheme on the Scottish island of Lewis.

The country could meet its demand for electricity to some extent by utilising untapped potential of generating energy from sea wave, an expert said here yesterday.
