Multi-use Oceanic Platform for Renewables

AWS Truepower

The H2OCEAN platform will harvest wind and wave power, using part of the energy on-site for multiple applications including a multi-trophic aquaculture farm, and convert on-site, the excess energy into hydrogen.

A unique feature of the H2OCEAN concept, beyond the integration of various activities in different economic sectors, is the approach to transporting excess renewable energy generated offshore through hydrogen. This conceptual model avoids the grid imbalance problem inherent to current offshore renewable energy systems and eliminates the need for cost-prohibitive cable transmission systems.
