Researchers are working on a new form of hydro power. This power created by vibrations in the water. Leonardo DaVinci discovered this almost 500 years ago. These vibrations can cause havoc on offshore structures. Now they are trying to amplify this power to create usable energy.
One advatage is that they start producing power at very low speeds, less than 2 knots or 2 mph. The general wind turbine does not start producing power until speeds of 5 to 6 knots.
