  • Tocardo, Climex make tidal energy distribution deal

    Tocardo Tidal Turbine

    Renewable power trader Climex has agreed to sell marine energy generated by Tocardo Tidal Turbines through its green energy trading platforms.

    The arrangement will see Climex sell Tocardo-produced energy, allowing "businesses and other large-scale electricity users to add tidal energy to their renewable energy mix," the Dutch company said.

    "Our agreement with Climex will make tidal energy readily available to corporations and government agencies at competitive prices," Tocardo CEO Hans van Breugel said. "This is an important step in Tocardo's efforts to create a well-functioning market for tidal energy, which can provide 10% to 20% of the world's demand for electricity."

    Climex, which specializes in the trade of demonstrably green energy, said the addition of Tocardo significantly enhances its offerings.

    "The agreement with Tocardo fits our strategy to provide renewable energy sources to high energy users in a transparent and reliable way," Climex general manager Jeroen van de Kletersteeg said.

    HydroWorld.com reported in January that Tocardo had signed a deal with oil and gas conglomerate Repsol to further offshore tidal development.

    The company has also been working to provide turbines for hydrokinetic projects in Nepal and Japan.
