"Sure, wind power is the low-hanging fruit. That's why we've been harvesting it for centuries.
Personally, I think it's time to develop something better. Developing a commercial ocean current generator will indeed involve a bit more…"
"I think wind energy scales as the cube of the velocity, and likewise for ocean currents. It would also appear to scale with the density of the medium. For wind we would get 20*20*20*0.001225, or 9.8. For ocean currents we…"
"Have you researched this, Lensman. The fastest ocean currents are just over 5 mph. Land wind turbines are only sited where average winds are higher than that. The winds in the valley near Palm Springs average 15 - 10 mpg. Higher winds, more…"
