AN OCEAN OF
PERPETUAL CLEAN ENERGY
Gulf Stream Currents Power The Future

Perpetual Energy and a Clean Alternative to Fossil Fuel

OceanBased Perpetual Energy, a revolutionary renewable energy developer, is solidifying years of scientific research that proves the viability of harnessing energy from the Florida Gulf Stream current and converting it to clean, renewable power for the nation’s power grid and other end uses.

Compared with solar, wind and other alternative energy sources, the powerful Gulf Stream runs perpetually and is capable of producing continuous power.

Our work has shown that the Florida Gulf Stream represents the optimal location to commercialize ocean current energy and provide clean, sustainable, renewable power 24 hours per day.

"The culmination of 10 to 12 years of hard work, dreams, hope, and guts!"

Preferred Partner With SNMREC

The U.S. Southeast National Marine Renewable Energy Center (SNMREC) is a U.S. Department of Energy and State of Florida-designated research and development center at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) that is focused on enabling the safe and responsible commercialization of marine renewables in Florida, the nation and around the world.

About Us

OceanBased is a renewable energy developer dedicated to bringing baseload-capable, clean, renewable energy to market. We seek to help reduce global carbon emissions by harnessing the power of the Gulf Stream and converting it to perpetual, sustainable clean energy.

Advantages

The powerful Gulf Stream flows north at 3 to 5 miles per hour from the Florida Straits to Cape Hatteras. Moving at 8 billion gallons of water per minute, its energy-dense Florida portion alone could yield 4 to 6 gigawatts of clean, renewable energy.

Our Approach

From ocean current energy converters suspended 300 ft. deep in the powerful Gulf Stream, harnessed carbon-free power is transmitted to ocean floor substations, then cables to an onshore substation connected to the electrical grid and industrial consumers.

Why Ocean Current Energy?

The constant flow of ocean currents creates enormous amounts of kinetic energy across the earth’s oceans.  Ocean currents, with relatively constant and directional flow, represent an extraordinary sustainable and renewable energy source.

Ocean water is the fuel for ocean current-derived marine energy, with no emissions to adversely affect the environment.  Rigorous permitting processes, substantial marine research, and ongoing operational surveillance work together to protect the marine environment.

As global energy consumption increases each year, ocean current patterns around the world provide substantial opportunity to meet increasing energy demands.  Because water density is more than 800 times that of air, the potential to channel it through ocean current energy converters represents an efficient method of marine energy production.

Why the Florida Gulf Stream?

24/7 Operation

The Florida Gulf Stream is in perpetual motion, moving 8 billion gallons of water per minute 24 hours per day.

Consistent Velocity and Direction

Persistent northern flow at 3 to 5 miles per hour provides an attractive environment for ocean current energy converters.

South Florida Proximity

It flows northward only 12 to 15 miles from South Florida’s coast, providing access to supply lines, ports and energy consumers.

Geophysically Attractive

Research shows vast areas of the sea floor beneath the Gulf Stream are attractive for responsible development.

Clean Energy Designed with the Environment in Mind

The environment is central to our mission.  Throughout every stage from concept to commercial operations, we engage with federal, state, and local authorities, environmental and local interest groups to ensure compliance with all applicable regulations and permitting requirements, and develop effective monitoring and adaptive management protocols for responsible commercialization of ocean current energy.  A combination of environmental assessment activities and equipment design criteria will ensure that we install and operate with the environment in mind.
