    Abstract : New technologies for the extraction of valuable ocean resources are emerging: renewable ocean energy. Ocean energy technologies have so far primarily been developed in industrialized countries but will be deployed in both industrialized and developing countries. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cooling Strategies for Wave Power Conversion Systems

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Antoine Baudoin; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Wave power; power conversion system; thermal management; power elctronics; passive cooling; natural convection.;

    Abstract : The Division for Electricity of Uppsala University is developing a wave power concept. The energy of the ocean waves is harvested with wave energy converters, consisting of one buoy and one linear generator. The units are connected in a submerged substation. The mechanical design is kept as simple as possible to ensure reliability. READ MORE

  3. 3. Power from the Brave New Ocean - Marine Renewable Energy and Ecological Risks

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Linus Hammar; [2014]

    Abstract : This thesis address ecological risks associated with the possible growth of marine renewable energy. Tidal power, wave power, ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) and currently expanding offshore wind power are likely to become common components of future seascapes. READ MORE

  4. 4. Integrating Biomass in Existing Natural Gas-Fired Power Plants

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Erik Pihl; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Forest Residue; Modeling; Hybrid Combined Cycles; Biomass; Gasification; Efficiency;

    Abstract : Using biomass for utility heat and electricity generation can supplement use of fossil fuels, whose emissions of carbon dioxide likely risk causing serious climate change and ocean acidification. Biomass as energy source is a limited resource and when used as fuel in thermal power plants this currently results in higher production costs than using fossil fuels such as natural gas and coal.
