Renewable energy: CETO system converts sea waves into zero-emission electricity

383 ratings | 64508 views
An Australian company has been working on a system that uses underwater buoys to convert sea waves into zero-emission energy and desalinated water. Australian firm Carnegie Wave Energy has been developing a system called CETO, which aims to utilise sea waves to generate power. Steel-made buoys that can currently generate 240 kilowatts are the main part of the system. At the Australian naval base HMAS Stirling, three buoys are placed 11 kilometres apart. The buoys are less susceptible to extreme weather damage, while underwater waves are sufficient to generate power. The buoys' pumps drive the high pressure water to an onshore power plant via a subsea pipe. The high pressure water spins the turbines, which then generate zero-carbon electricity. The CETO system can be used to power a desalination plant as well. High pressure water can be utilised to remove salt from seawater through a permeable membrane in a process called reverse osmosis. The Australian company believes that the cost of electricity generated by the CETO system will be competitive with diesel if it is deployed at a large scale. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

The best thing I've found on the net was plans from Avasva .

*I am taking a course at the community college and use this book which is really excellent.If you are getting to Solar Energy, this [link here >>> **https://t.co/2gsWzGL1BF** ] book is a must.*

*I have a Degree in Renewable Energy and this book [link here>>>**https://t.co/z2HakYxvSR** ] was required for the Solar Energy class. It is easy to read with good explanations. I would recommend to anyone.*

good I like it useful for us

Stupid. What a waste! Start investigating Tesla technology that the Military Industrial Complex has been using and suppressing for almost 50 years. That's a more viable place to start instead of all this elaborate, expensive nonsense.

Carnegie Clean energy is what the company is called. They are gonna focus on large scale utility market and the island market, the island market alone is worth up to 40 billion US dollars just for Carnegie add the utility market and its way way more. Ceto 6 will be the 1MW commercial product they will be selling to the market. Carnegie has expanded more than just wave energy they are doing battery storage, solar and wave using all 3 of them at once. By using all 3 you can get get the whole energy package at once. Carnegie clean energy has the worlds only wave operating plant. But ceto 6 will be the game changer Carnegie will have no competitors in the wave energy sector.

I am so curious...... How to inject water? Anyone know that??? It has to inject water and theh the pump can emit high pressure water.....

Hi I don't get it, How does the buoys collect water when they're full of air??? captain please?

Who doesn't like this........ U know..... its 100,000,000,000,000 times better then giving everyone on earth cancer.

Well, california is short on energy and they're water will last only 1 year.  Those mofos better get their butts movin..

Nice idea! Too bad it only works in shallow waters.

genius even if electricity is not competative to nuclear they sill produe lots of power,drinkibile water,and salt and no waist pure profit from 3 source at 1 ...
MrTommyboy68 (3 years ago)
This makes sense as I as I have been reading about this type of system for a while and this is the first I have seen it explained in a graphic mode.  Like solar and wind, as they move forward on this the costs will drop.  GREAT IDEA FOR DESALINIZATION.  Since it is already high pressure no need for electric pumps to run the RO system.  BRAVO!!!!  Let's hope they continue.  California needs to look into this and they can sell the sea salt for a huge profit (instead of current methods)

not a very good explanation, i still dont know how it works
GemMine (3 years ago)
+Austin Hirsch yeah i looked it up but thanks.
The waves move the buoy up and down pushing water into the pipes, and into turbines that are connected to generators.
Tulip Dew (3 years ago)
That is so cool! Imagine thousands of years from now, long after we're gone, other intelligent beings who will inherit the earth will find all these buoys across earth's shores everywhere, and wonder what ancient civilizations made them, and if they were "monuments for the gods".  They will probably also assume that "ancient aliens" helped people build them. Heheh..

So its better to write on them in ENGLISH that i was done by us ans not aliens.
sanitallica (3 years ago)
+Amaterasu16 Are you sure they are aliens from another planet/dimension and not humans from the future? Just a little plot twist!
Hermaeus Mora (3 years ago)
I agree. If only we could live forever, to see for ourselves.

I always thought turbines powered by tidal energy was a great possibility. I have never seen these devices before.  What a marvelous idea! I'm sure Big Oil can't wait to crush it.
theylied1776 (3 years ago)
Those Motherf#@kers stole my idea! When I learned about the great dust bowl from the thirties, droughts in California's farmland, in high school, many moons ago, I came up with wave generator power plants. They would work on the same platform as a oil refinery and pipeline. The only difference is that my design would call for platform based thirty foot tower dehumidifiers. But I can't really get mad because if any country was going to come up with such a design, it would be Australia. Now they can turn those big ass deserts into thriving farmland.

so salt is the wast product , what they doing with that
theylied1776 (3 years ago)
Sea or (pure ocean) salt is twice as valuable than regular table salt. They will make hundreds of millions selling this by product.

Shipping it to Canada so they can use it to melt snow in the winter.

I thought you pronounced them boys not booeys?
Joe Randella (2 years ago)
+Even So Surely there is one original proper way of pronouncing it though?
John Paul Wolfsberg (2 years ago)
In my part of the world we call them BUTTS, they bob up and down
rwtig (3 years ago)
+Even So Only because in certain areas of the world someone started pronouncing buoy incorrectly and everyone copied them. But if enough people start saying something incorrectly it then becomes correct apparently.
Even So (3 years ago)
How you pronounce "bouy" depends on what area of the planet you are from and therefore the pronunciation he uses is not necessarily incorrect.
