Tidal energy: The energy of the future

A safe, widely available, renewable energy

Our technology can be applied to all types of aquatic current. Initial models have been developed for tidal currents but these can be adapted to any current.

Environmentally friendly

Eel energy is environmentally friendly
  • No pollutants or waste products.
  • No visual pollution. No impact on the shoreline.
  • Minimal area required: 10 times smaller than wind turbines.
  • No noise pollution under or above water.
  • Not harmful to wildlife.
  • Zero CO2 emissions.
  • Areas potentially navigable while machines are on the seabed.

A predictable and reliable energy source

  • Tidal energy is predictable, quantifiable, localized and regular.
  • Currents operate for approximately 20 hours a day, resulting in a load factor of 50% (as against 25% for wind turbines).
  • Only currently available solution with such benefits, making it more efficient and desirable than solar or wind energy.
