HC Energy



Marine Current Energy
Ocean or Marine Current Energy can be considered as submerged wind turbines, however instead of extracting energy from the flow of wind, they instead relies on the flow of ocean currents. While this flow speed is very low, (the HC average is m/s ( f/s)), the fact that seawater is around 850 times more dense than air (1,026 vs. 1.21 kg/m3 [64.03 vs .075 lbs/ft3]) inversely, greatly makes up for this.
