The article discusses various technologies in harnessing ocean and tidal energy. The Roosevelt Island project in New York City uses tidal in-stream energy conversion, or TISEC. It generates electricity with a turbine generator driven by the kinetic energy of ebbing and flowing tides. Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) exploits temperature differences between cold deep seawater and warm surface water in tropical oceans to drive turbines.
