HP to Help Carnegie Develop AI-Tech for Wave Energy Project
Australian wave energy technology developer Carnegie Clean Energy has signed an agreement with Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company (HPE) to cooperate on a project to develop a reinforcement learning-based controller for the CETO wave energy technology.CETO is a fully submerged, point absorber type wave energy technology. A submerged buoy sits a few meters below the surface of the ocean and moves with the ocean’s waves. This orbital motion drives a power take-off (PTO) system that converts this motion into electricity.Carnegie said the cooperation with HPE would extend the artificial intelligence

the ecoSUB small AUV developed by Planet Ocean in partnership with the NOC, and the AutoNaut USV that is now being successfully deployed for important global projects such as the Big Ocean Clean Up.Looking forward the subsea industry faces many challenges (see related story page 55) – the clean energy transition brings many challenges but also vast opportunities, not least because the ocean offers huge potential for clean energy resources. Technologies are advancing at an incredible rate – the advent of autonomy, robotics, and artificial intelligence will have a transformative impact

and opportunities associated with the development of new ocean technologies and also an opportunity for companies, research organisations and public administration to exchange views and get a better understanding of opportunities they can jointly address.”Portugal’s commitment to clean energy is underpinned by the National Energy and Climate Plan 2030, which is aiming for 80pc of the nation’s total energy usage to be drawn from renewables by 2030. Meanwhile, renewable energy in Canada currently provides around 17pc of the nation’s primary energy supply, with the majority
Carnegie, Oceantera to Collaborate on Wave Energy Projects
Wave energy technology developer Carnegie Clean Energy has signed a memorandum of understanding with Oceantera, to share knowledge and expertise on wave energy development.Carnegie and Oceantera - which is a joint venture between UK's Aquatera and Singapore's OceanPixel - will cooperate and share knowledge on wave energy markets, markets, customer requirements, and the CETO technology.Per Carnegie, CETO is a fully submerged, point absorber type wave energy technology. A submerged buoy sits a few meters below the surface of the ocean and moves with the ocean’s waves. This orbital motion

This is how we build our clean energy future." Seamus O'Regan, Canada's Minister of Natural Resources"This investment will not only help propel the tidal energy industry forward in Nova Scotia, it also highlights how it can drive innovation that can lead to new jobs. It is a new and innovative approach to generating

will provide space for the fabrication, assembly and servicing of commercial-scale wave energy converters.A spokesperson for the APDL Board said: “This project is in line with European sustainability objectives and is a considerable step towards decarbonization and large-scale implementation of clean energy. We intend to serve as an example, for other European ports, in what regards the utilization of existing infrastructures for similar purposes.”The CorePower WEC is of point absorber type, with a heaving buoy on the surface absorbing energy from ocean waves and which is connected to the seabed

World's Most Powerful Wind Turbine Hits Key Milestone
in one day. The Haliade-X has also been recognized as the Best Sustainable Invention of the Year by TIME magazine and Best Wind Turbine of the Year by Wind Power Monthly magazine.One GE Haliade-X 12 MW offshore wind turbine can generate up to 67 GWh of gross annual energy production, providing enough clean energy to power 16,000 European households and save up to 42,000 metric tons of CO2, which is the equivalent of the emissions generated by 9,000 vehicles in one year.
