by Markian M.W. Melnyk and Robert M. Andersen
As the United States seeks ways to meet the ever-increasing power needs of its large coastal population areas, thereëís a growing focus on the plentiful renewable energy resources located just offshore.
In their insightful book, energy experts Markian Melnyk and Robert Andersen outline the important new offshore options available to a nation on the threshold of a green revolution. The experience gained by early offshore oil and gas prospectors, as well as by more recent developers of European offshore wind, wave, and tidal energy projects, provide a wealth of knowledge that can be readily transferred to North American marine energy projects.
Whether youëí're a developer, financial backer, or regulator, Offshore Power charts a course for long-term deployment of marine renewable energy facilities, and creates a compelling picture of a greener future.
