Catch And Release The Motion Of The Ocean...


Predictable


Nothing Consumed


Out Of Sight      Out Of Mind


Tidal Power will help solve global issues related to sea level rise.


Enormous construction projects, designed to protect port cities from inundation, will soon be underway all over the planet.


Coastal Remediation will put a serious strain on the power grid of every one of these cities.


Shoreline Earth  can solve this impending problem before it gets out of hand.


With sea level rise looming on the horizon, we should immediately start treating Tidal Power with the same enthusiasm and determination we once showed for going to the Moon.


After all, Tidal Power comes to us courtesy of the Moon.


The challenge is, put Tidal Power on the fast track.


Let’s get started, the clock is ticking, and the tide is rising.


Let the competition begin.


Shoreline Earth Tidal Power Generator #1 is my offering.


The blades rotate as they catch and release tidal motion, transferring the energy through the shaft, driving the generator with the full force of the ocean.


The tide continues to flow undisturbed.


All we do is borrow the energy.


RE the competition…


As of this writing, all the hype and funding is going towards wind farms on the Ocean, while Tidal Power gets overlooked.


Wind on the water has a serious leg up on Tidal Power, primarily because nobody knows anything about the benefits of Tidal Power, while the so-called ‘smart money’ is sold on wind.


Shoreline Earth’s 5Mw, plug and play unit will outperform Deepwater Wind or any other wind on the water project.


Deepwater cost $290  million ( with many estimates much higher ) to install five units capable of generating 6Mw/ea, creating a total potential output of 30Mw.


That’s about $10 million/Mw.


Model #1 will be delivered to your location on the US East Coast for $5 million/ea ( setup and placement costs vary by location ).


Total cost could reach $7.5 million/ea.


That’s about $1.5 million/Mw.


Six units ( 30 Mw ) @ $7.5 million/ea. is $45 million v. $290 million for Deepwater Wind ( Forbes observation ).


While wind farms romanticize their attempts to try and catch the wind’, #1 will Catch And Release The Motion Of The Ocean to deliver steady, efficient power to coastal consumers at a fraction of the cost.


And, best of all, Shoreline Earth #1 operates on the seafloor, out of sight, out of mind.

Demand Tidal Power...

It will solve the sustainable energy problem.

It's All About The Shoreline...

Earth's shoreline is changing.

Sea level rise looms on the horizon.

How will we pay for it?

Offshore tidal generators can produce cheap electricity for coastal remediation projects.

This will ease the economic burden of sea level rise, while expediting development of a sustainable energy source.

When the generators are no longer needed for infrastructure work, local communities will benefit from their continuing output.

Tidal Power does not require digging, drilling, fracking, or transporting of fuel.

All that's required is a cable to shore.

Look at this image of Earth at night.



The brightest spots are all along the coast.

These commercial hubs already display the greatest need for electricity.

The same global bright spots also face the greatest need of coastal remediation, which will increase power consumption to the limit.

Tidal Power will allow us to contend with sea level rise without straining the grid in these heavy use locations.

The tide will help us through an impending global crisis, while becoming a clean, highly efficient, low cost energy source for the future.

Imagine the benefits.

Sea level rise is a hint from Mother Nature, our cue to Demand Tidal Power.

Prologue...


Hi, I'm Steve Smyth.

In 2007 I began this project with these words…

There’s a Seachange a’comin’
Comin’ for us all
We’re bound to get swept up in it
All ridin’ on this ball
Since what you see
Is what you get
Learn to see it all…

That Seachange is upon us, and it all stems from the global battle for control of energy.

Cultural upheaval, along with climate change and sea level rise are fueling the Seachange.

All of which starts with oil.

Dependence on oil and other fossil fuels causes the upheaval, and is the driver behind climate change.

How can we break the cycle?

I’ve got an idea!

Tidal Power.

Perfect!

I’ve been mesmerized by the Motion Of The Ocean since I was a kid.

That fascination is going to help us restore our niche, just in the nick o’ time.

This will help save our offspring from a future of choking on the atmosphere and facing one natural disaster after another while fending off terrorism.

It’s all here for your perusal and comment.

Tidal Power is the solution.

Intro...Tidal Power...

The Tide is the most powerful engine on Earth.

Driven by the Moon's gravity, the inexhaustible force of The Tide will provide clean energy forever.

It's time to harness The Motion Of The Ocean.

Tidal Power is a boundless gift of Nature.

This infinite natural resource is ours to utilize.

All the energy we could ever use is right in front of our eyes.

Tidal Power is the primal source, an untapped gift of nature with infinite potential.

The idea that we can simply harness the tide to produce cheap electricity seems so simple and obvious it can’t be real, it's just too good to be true.

If Tidal Power is this easy, why hasn't it been done?

No one has yet developed an efficient, consistently productive design.




Shoreline Earth Tidal Power Generator #1 will evolve into an inexpensive, highly efficient, easily installed, plug and play power source for coastal locations around the world.

More importantly, the success of generator #1 will stimulate further development in the field of Tidal Power.

I expect my early concepts to be obsolete within a few years, as fresh young minds expand the idea, and improve the design.

Looking forward twenty years, undersea generators will be ubiquitous.

We cannot over-utilize this natural resource.

Nothing is consumed, no pollution is produced, and there is no noise.

Unlike wind generators, #1 sits silently on the sea bottom, out of sight, out of mind.

Think about it.

The most powerful engine on this planet surrounds us, ready to fulfill our energy needs.

It’s time to benefit from this awesome force by harnessing The Motion Of The Ocean.
