Merge[edit]

I propose marine current power be merged into this article; both share the same subject. This article is also small enough to support a full merge. Rehman(+) 06:58, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

  • Support as nominator. Rehman(+) 10:53, 26 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Marine energy is broader than that. It encompasses wave power as well as currents. Arguably even offshore wind and certainly ocean thermal as a discussion topic, even though that is one of the more obscurely theoretical approaches. Andy Dingley (talk) 10:07, 26 June 2010 (UTC)
  • Withdraw merger as nominator. Per Andy. Rehman(+) 07:54, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

Marine Energy / Ocean Energy[edit]

Hello,

Firstly I'd like to declare that I work for the Ocean Energy Europe, the trade association for ocean renewables in Europe.

I'd like to suggest that the name of this page is changed to 'Ocean Energy'. For the following reason:

When we say 'Marine Energy' we include offshore wind. When we say 'Ocean Energy' we refer to all those energy technologies which derive energy from the water (tidal stream / barage, wave, salinity gradient and OTEC).

As this page excludes offshore wind, I recommend it be changed to 'Ocean Energy' — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rob OEE (talkcontribs) 15:00, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
