In 2011, with some big fossil fuel and nuclear stories providing the backdrop, renewable energy made some impressive gains both in terms of capacity installed and of movement into arenas that aren't yet fully a part of the energy landscape. To the latter point -- occasional news about tidal, wave, and hydrokinetic energy were a welcome development. Plans for tidal turbines in India started us off, while a pilot wave power project was announced in Oregon. Meanwhile, a mapping tool is now available helping to assess tidal power resources around the U.S. There is also increasing attention on technologies that might improve on or at least supplement traditional wind and solar energy.
