Clip On Tidal Power Systems for Offshore Wind Turbines

Treehugger has this piece about a new patented wave power design that would just clip on to an offshore wind turbine to generate even more power from the same location: http://www.treehugger.com/files/2009/02/new-wave-power-device-attaches-to-offshore-wind-turbine-wave-treader.php Turns out that the company that patented this design is a Scottish one. The Scots do know a thing or two about wind power, wave power etc as earlier posts about various projects undertaken in Britain show. Do check Green Ocean Energy's website out from their link: http://www.greenoceanenergy.com/

Now, doesn't India have a fantastically long coastline that could benefit from having these units hugging it? Nudge, nudge, wink, wink . . .
