This white paper covers the findings of a project that compares a generic axial, fixed pitch, bi-directional, variable speed turbine generator device with a generic axial, variable pitch turbine generator device that rotates to face into the tidal flow. The principal objective is to ident ify the  circumstances and extent to which the simple bi-directional device may be competitive with the variable pitch device on a lifetime cost basis

The objective of the work described herein was to undertake a major advance
in the technology of tidal current turbine design calculations, significantly
beyond the current generation of calculation methods available to the industry.
Although current calculation methods may be suitable for prototype
developments, this advance is crucially important in order that the
manufacturers are adequately equipped to tackle the complex problems
associated with the design of commercial tidal current turbines which are
reliable, structurally optimised, and cost-effective

Great postioning paper from the IPCC Scoping Conference on Renewable Energy, Lübeck, Germany, January 2008

Ocean Energy (OE) represents one of the largest renewable resources available on the planet. OE is an emerging industry that has a potential to satisfy world-wide demand for electricity, water and fuels, when coupled with secondary energy conversation principles.
OE represents a number of energy conversion principles:
- Wave energy is represented by surface and subsur-face motion of the waves;
- Hydrokinetic energy that harvests the energy of ocean currents and tides;
- Ocean thermal energy conversion uses the tempera-ture differential between cold water from the deep ocean and warm surface water;
- Osmotic energy is the pressure differential between salt and fresh water.
