Georgia Tech, in partnership with DOE, in June 2011 introduced a new database highlighting the energy potential available in the U.S. from ocean tides.
Hot Spots: Alaska, Maine, Washington, Oregon, California, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, North and South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida (descending order)
*The extractable resource is not completely known; assuming 15% level of extraction, EPRI has documented 16 TWh/yr in Alaska, 0.6 TWh/yr in Puget Sound, and 0.4 TWh/yr in CA, MA, and ME.
Oregon Iron Works has the skilled workforce ready to build what others envision. Ocean renewable energy is a key growth industry that allows us to diversify our business while we continue to grow and create new green jobs right here in the United States.
