Alternate energy solutions with solar, wind power, biogas, geothermal, hydrokinetic
and mini- hydel technologies are a relatively new phenomena but their scientific basis is well established since past several decades.
According to Pike Research's January 2012 report, Hydrokinetic and Ocean Energy Renewable Power Generation, the U.
Designs for hydrokinetic devices continue to evolve.
The most popular hydrokinetic device is the turbine.
Because these turbines are installed underwater, which is much denser than air, hydrokinetic turbines provide much more power than wind turbines at relatively low water current speeds.
