currents are constant energy
Gigantic amounts of energy are transported by ocean currents, mainly in the form of kinetic and thermal energy. Ocean currents usually are rather slow and can’t be dammed up — as e.g. in the case of rivers. However, large amounts of energy can be extracted if appropriate system technology is applied.
reac uses currents to produce energy
REAC Energy GmbH has developed appropiate system technology. The key components are modular units called StreamCube®. Using the ram pressure of the inflowing water, StreamCube® operates like a conventional water wheel. The rotors move comparatively slowly, decisively contributing to the protection of the waterworld. Due to the low-cost and modular design of the StreamCubes® even currents with slow flow velocities can be used cost efficiently.
