New energy technologies promise brighter future

Nanotechnology and Florida’s oceans to play a role in ‘energizing’ our lives

In three studies published in the current issue of Technology and Innovation – Proceedings of the National Academy of Inventors®,  innovators unveil creative technologies that could change our sources of energy, change our use of energy, and change our lives.

Untapped energy in the oceans

The kinetic energy in the Florida Current and in Florida’s ocean waves can be captured and used, said Howard P. Hanson of the Southeast National Marine Renewable Energy Center at Florida Atlantic University.
