Will tidal power generation ocean ever be harnessed to provide electricity for data centers? There have been a number of projects hoping to tap power from tidal energy or surface waves, but none have advanced very far. Now a leading player in data center power is participating in a promising project to make ocean power a reality. Eaton said recently that it will help develop an underwater, utility-scale energy generation system for the U. S. Navy. Built for the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), Eaton will collaborate with Eclipse Group and Triton Energy Systems on the initiative.
