German firm introducing game-changing solar-wind-wave energy platform

A German power firm will launch demonstrations of a one-of-a-kind, triple-threat power generating platform off Iraklio, Greece, later this year.

The modular nature of the platform is unique in the industry. "The modular design has been a key element since we started developing maritime technologies that allow flexibility and a wide variety of applications," according to SINN Power CEO Philipp Sinn. "The floating platform can supply renewable energy to islands across the world … and contribute to the worldwide implementation of offshore wind farms." The platforms rely on three renewable sources of energy: wave, wind and solar.  Read more....
