Ocean powered hydroelectric generator
It is a new type of enclosed hydroelectric dam that works off pressure differentials in sea or deep lake water at great depths. It can generate up to 500 Megawatts of continuous, non-polluting, renewable energy out of sight in oceans or deep lakes.The "hydrosphere" can be used to generate power in any ocean of the world and deep lakes, except the extreme polar regions; and at various depths. Sea Solar Power International of Baltimore, Maryland, a division of the Abell Foundation, is currently evaluating this patent pending technology for possible prototyping and eventual production.The "hydrosphere" could eventually become a tremendous source of new electrical energy for the world, benefiting all nations with access to oceans or deep lakes; and dramatically lower the cost of generating electrical power worldwide. This would not only help replace fossil fuel burning power plants, which contribute significantly to global warming; but make electrical power cheap enough to make electrical vehicles extremely practical, thus reducing worldwide dependence upon oil.
