A recent survey of more than 400 engineers conducted by ASME found that 75 percent had little or no familiarity with hydrokinetic power. This webinar provides an understanding of hydrokinetic power – hear from two technical experts and take a deep dive into demo projects underway in New York Harbor and the Gulf Stream. Learn about the energy behind each technology, the environmental constraints, and the challenges associated with licensing.
