Developers

Verdant Isles Ltd. – www.verdantpower.com

“Founded in 2000, Verdant Power’s mission is to help build sustainable communities through a holistic approach focused on clean energy generation as well as advancing partnerships and hybrid platforms to make significant impacts at the water-energy nexus.

Verdant Power develops technologies and projects that generate village- and utility-scale energy from the free-flowing currents of tides, rivers, and canals, referred to as ‘marine’ or ‘marine & hydrokinetic (MHK)’ energy.

Verdant Power is headquartered in New York, NY with subsidiaries in Canada and the UK. In 2014, Verdant partnered with Irish contractor Belleville Duggan Renewables to form Verdant Isles Ltd., which is focused on project development in Ireland.”

Orbital Marine Power – www.orbitalmarine.com

“Orbital Marine Power Limited (formerly known as Scotrenewables Tidal Power) is credited with pioneering floating tidal stream turbines since the company’s formation in 2002 in Orkney, Scotland. Orbital have maintained and advanced this position by developing the world’s leading engineering knowledge and technology in floating tidal stream turbines.

The company’s Orbital O2 turbine represents a move towards commercial operation as the company delivers projects to a growing global market for predictable renewable power.

The team at Orbital continue to innovate at the cutting edge of tidal stream technology.”

Aquantis – www.aquantistech.com

“Aquantis, headquartered in Santa Barbara, California, was formed in 2011 to develop and commercialize marine current turbines. Aquantis is built on the founders’ three-decade legacy of successful wind power technology development, manufacturing and building power projects around the world. This deep knowledge is now applied to advancing ocean current power generation, joining with wind and solar toward displacing carbon fuels and helping to mitigate the burdens of climate change and degradation of the biosphere.”

Nova Innovation – www.novainnovation.com

“Nova Innovation, founded in 2010, is a leading tidal energy industry player headquartered in Edinburgh. Nova Innovation design, build and operate tidal energy devices, and develop sites for arrays of tidal turbines.

Nova Innovation are passionate about having a cleaner environment and reducing the need for fossil fuels, for current and future generations. And are committed to engage with and source from local supply chains: Nova Innovation believe that the resources and expertise of coastal communities will make a major contribution to the success of tidal power.

Nova Innovation’s aim is to be the world’s leading tidal energy technology company. Drawing on past lessons from the wind power sector, Nova Innovation strongly believe that the way to achieve this is to demonstrate commercial devices at a relatively small (sub-megawatt) scale, then scale up in size as the technology is proven: start small, think big, move fast.”

Instream Energy Systems – www.instreamenergy.com

“Since its inception in 2008, Instream has developed an advanced market knowledge, a strong pipeline of potential commercial sales, and key strategic technology relationships. Instream, with design partner BAE Systems, has developed a patent-pending high efficiency hydrokinetic turbine and demonstrated its viability in projects with major waterway owners and utilities such as BC Hydro and the US Bureau of Reclamation (USBR).”

Tocardo Tidal Power – www.tocardo.com

“Tocardo Tidal Power are a Dutch founded and based company and global leader in tidal energy solutions. Tocardo are driven to develop state-of-the-art business solutions that maximise the potential of the tidal energy production worldwide. Tocardo believe that this type of energy stands at the beginning of its development and its full potential, just like wind turbines 10 years ago. But unlike other alternative sources, this ‘flow of energy’, delivers a solid, reliable volume of green energy. Starting from Tocardo’s Dutch heritage, they have created a predictable, cost-effective solution that can change the future around the globe.”

Big Moon Power LLC – www.bigmoonpower.com

“Big Moon Power was founded by former President and Executive Vice President, Xerox Services, Lynn Blodgett in 2015.

Big Moon’s technology addresses and solves the greatest challenges to the tidal industry. There is no sea-floor attachment, no electrical components, no in-stream tidal turbine, and no reliance on the rising or falling of the tide.

Further, Big Moon’s installation cost is low and provides a short path to commercial availability. Big Moon’s implementations are simple to maintain and provide a low capitalized cost per megawatt hour competitive with other renewable sources of energy. The result is energy that is inexpensive, clean, safe, and perpetually generated.”
