UCD School of Physics in association with the IOP is delighted to continue the “Next Step” Series with another past graduate. This time it is Theoretical Physics Graduate Daniel O’Neill who is now a Research & Development Electrical Engineer with OpenHydro. OpenHydro is a technology business that designs and manufactures marine turbines to generate renewable energy from tidal streams. The company's vision is to deploy farms of tidal turbines under the world's oceans - silently and invisibly generating electricity at no cost to the environment. OpenHydro's technology enables the ocean's immense energy to be harnessed for the benefit of all. The electricity produced is completely renewable since it relies on tides that are created by the gravitational effect of the sun and moon. Through this innovative technology, OpenHydro aims to extract energy from the oceans in an economically viable and environmentally sensitive manner the open-centre turbine. Daniel O’Neill will discuss his role in OpenHydro, his physics background and career development.
