Jarle Berntsen (Department of Mathematics): Tidal Current Energy
On the Bergen Energy Lab lunch meeting on the 24th of April, Jarle Berntsen gave a talk on tidal current energy.
Jarle is a Professor at the Department of Mathematics at the University of Bergen, and he has contributed significantly to research on ocean modelling.
His presentation gave an overview of the potential for harvesting energy from tidal currents. Giving examples of some existing technologies, as well as some success stories, Jarle explained how mathematical research can contribute in optimizing energy harvest from hydrodynamic flow.
