    Abstract

    The power point presentation discussed the developing technology of ocean energy with design convergence on tidal but not on wave. Today's technologies will help solve the immediate needs, but we need to work hard nurturing tomorrow's low carbon technologies today. Ocean energy represents one of the more difficult forms of renewable energy to harness. The UK is leading internationally in the development of marine energy but further development investment is needed to move the technology forward. Marine energy could supply up to 2 GW of UK electricity demand by 2020 and significantly more than this by 2050. The development of ocean energy and promising ocean driven machines are briefly reviewed, their operating conditions and the suitability of different types of hydro turbines for use as power take off options, the recent international experience, and how the technology is developing.
