This book, Ocean Energy Recovery: The State of the Art, establishes the state of the art in the full range of renewable energy technologies. It includes mature technologies such as tidal energy extraction to conjectural technologies such as salinity gradients. In addition, the economics of the major systems are compared in a uniform manner, making it possible to reslistically assess their economic potential. This publication provides a single source of balanced technical and economic assessmets of competing technologies and should be of interest to all who are involved in the search for alternative sources of energy.
