Prince of Tides
Inventor W. Scott Anderson has designed a new tidal turbine to generate electricity... one that doesn't adversely affect marine life.
Tidal power is an under-recognized clean energy source. It's not currently a cost competitive technology, but that will probably change over time. And since the tides are always ebbing and flowing, the energy source is more consistent than the wind.
This guy looks pretty rugged.
