Harnessing their vast expertise and knowledge of oceanography and energy the ripe4 renewable consultants in the hydro, wave and tidal power sector have a core focus on individuals seeking a career in these exciting and newly emerging sources of renewable energy.
Hydropower is using water to power machinery or make electricity. Water constantly moves through a vast global cycle, evaporating from lakes and oceans, forming clouds, precipitating as rain or snow, then flowing back down to the ocean. The energy of this water cycle, which is driven by the sun, can be tapped to produce electricity or for mechanical tasks like grinding grain. Hydropower uses a fuel; water that is not reduced or used up in the process. Since the water cycle is an endless, constantly recharging system, hydropower is regarded as a renewable energy.
The emerging wave and tidal sectors are currently characterised by a multitude of concept devices. An increasing number of these technologies have attracted investment and progressed to full-scale prototype testing. The first commercial projects are now beginning to appear.
Still in its infancy, this emerging sector still faces significant issues that must be addressed and overcome, issues such as costs, installation, operations & maintenance and investment. Ripe4 has the capability and expertise to deliver pre-screened, highly skilled personnel you can have confidence in our due diligence.
