Wave and tidal energy are two renewable energy technologies that are not yet as well known or used as wind or solar power. But the UK is surrounded by water with the potential to generate up to 20% of the UK’s current energy demand. This talk will explore how underwater acoustics (sound) could reduce running costs and make wave and tidal energy a more popular generation choice.
Jodi Walsh is a physics/engineering research scientist at the University of Exeter Renewable Energy Group. Her project also works very closely with the University Of Bath Department Of Physics where she completed her Masters in physics two years ago. Jodi is passionate about using science to help the world and hence her research uses acoustics to make marine renewable energy a more viable option for future energy generation.
Entering the Ladies College from Les Gravees/De Beauvoir, through the main entrance, the Leaf Centre is at the far end of the site behind the new extension to the school and the swimming pool.
CIGPE is the representative body for professional engineering institutions in the Channel Islands. We organize a number of engineering related events each year including a series of technical lectures. These events are free to attend and contribute to Continued Professional Development. While aimed at engineers, our events are open to all members of the public.
