Download Offshore Power - Building Renewable Energy Projects in U.S. Waters PDF free.

As the United States seeks ways to meet the ever-increasing power needs of its large coastal population areas, there’s a growing focus on the plentiful renewable energy resources located just offshore. In this book the authors outline the important new offshore options available to a nation on the threshold of a green revolution. The experience gained by early offshore oil and gas prospectors, as well as by more recent developers of European offshore wind, wave, and tidal energy projects, provides a wealth of knowledge that can be readily transferred to North American marine energy projects. Whether you’re a developer, financial backer, or regulator, this book charts a course for long-term deployment of marine renewable energy facilities, and creates a compelling picture of a greener future.
