What are your ideas? I just had this thought.... Could we not build giant 'paddle wheels' per se' out in the oceans where the currents are strongest? This would look like a swing set, you have the main cross bar and then an A frame on each side that is anchored into the the bed of the ocean. You then have a giant 'paddle wheel' or some form of device mounted to a generator and the paddles stick into the water, using ocean currents the water spins the paddle generating electricity. Now, the best thing to do would to have these in areas where storms happen most. The paddle would be HUGE, so that if you have 100 foot waves it is hitting only one half of the paddles. You would have multiple generators with multiple paddles such as it would look like this: -||-||-||-||- Durring a very large storm I would think a large amount of engergy could be created and / or stored. Fun stuff to think about, gets your noodle workin! Any other ideas? By the way, if this would NOT work, please explain why!
