Decarbonizing the Decarbonizing: Tidal and Wind Turbines Get Even More Sustainable
On a gray, foggy day in May 2021, a rust-kissed barge carried three shed-sized tidal turbines—each mounted on the points of a triangular steel frame—through New York City’s East River. Although the three turbines appeared to be identical, one was a doppelganger, built from an entirely new kind of resin that could help decarbonize even the most sustainable clean energy technologies, like tidal energy turbines.
