Renewable Ocean Energy

Limitless Clean Renewable Energy. Coming to Indiegogo!

Climate Change Solution – Ocean Energy Turbine

“The ocean’s currents have enough usable power to replace all Fossil Fuel and Nuclear Energy Dependence. Using Ocean Energy Turbines to harness this clean renewable energy to power the world is a real solution to Pollution and Climate Change.”


Who is Crowd Energy?

CrowdEnergy is a small collection of Engineers, Inventors, and Scientists.
We have specialists in SubSea Engineering, Oceanography, Marine Ecology and Conservation, Electrical Engineering, Fabrication and Design. “Imagine nerds in wetsuits and flippers…”

What is the goal of Crowd Energy?

Our goal is to find a practical and responsible way to replace the use of Fossil Fuels and Nuclear Energy. There are many promising forms of renewable energy in the world today, but most are limited by the consistency and quantity of renewable energy that can be produced. We decided to to identify a renewable energy source that was capable of consistent clean energy production and in a quantity that could satisfy the world growing energy needs. We have identified this source and have made great progress in developing a realistic and reliable means of harnessing this energy.

Why Should I care about Energy?

Ultimately this will not be your problem. It will be your children’s problem, and their children’s problem. Most people will not care as long as they can put fuel in their vehicle and turn on their lights. We like to ask people where their power comes from when they turn on a light. Most will answer “The Power Company?” The real answer is from polluting Fossil Fuel and Nuclear Energy. The current system of using Fossil Fuel and Nuclear Energy is designed to fail because those resources are limited and will run out. What we propose is to proactively shift to consuming a power that is non-polluting and will not run out. We are not asking you to change anything about your quality of life, we are asking that you help us ensure a quality of life for your family and generations to come.

Why does Renewable Energy need Crowdfunding?

We like the idea of putting the people who care about clean energy in charge. If it matters to you then get involved.
It has been our experience that the Big Corporate money, while easy to obtain, usually comes with hidden agendas.
We are dedicated to making this project a reality without being bought and shelved by a competing energy provider offering lucrative funding. This is our main reason for looking to Crowdfunding until we are large enough to fight our own battles. We are in it for the science and the promise of clean limitless energy. We hope that you will be involved for the same reasons.

Climate Change Solution – Ocean Energy Turbine

Limitless clean renewable energy – Crowd Energy will be launching a, first of its kind, crowdfunding campaign to fund the construction and development of the Ocean Energy Turbine.

ZEPHYRHILLS, FL – Crowd Energy, having completed construction and successful testing of its first generation prototype of the Ocean Energy Turbine, will launch a major crowdfunding campaign to construct a second generation turbine and move the project to (SNMREC) Southeast National Marine Renewable Energy Center at Florida Atlantic University for verification and open water testing.

The Ocean Energy Turbine is so important because it is the first renewable energy system designed to effectively harness ocean currents on a commercial scale. Globally, ocean currents have the power necessary to completely replace the worlds dependance on fossil fuels and nuclear energy.

The Ocean Energy Turbine project brings this yet untapped clean renewable energy source within reach of a world starving for energy. Ocean energy has a substantial advantage over wind power and solar power. The quantity of energy available from ocean energy greatly exceeds that of wind and solar. Ocean energy production is also a consistent reliable source of energy, whereas solar and wind power are limited by the availability of sun and wind.

Crowd Energy is going to raise funds to construct the second generation turbine and a laminar flow test tank. If the funding goal is exceeded there are a number of “Stretch Goals” that will allow Crowd Energy to accelerate development of the Ocean Energy Turbine.

Rather than seek corporate funding for expansion of the Ocean Energy Turbine project, Crowd Energy is turning to crowdfunding where it can be funded by Eco minded individuals who understand that it is all of our responsibility to support a responsible and sustainable transition to renewable energy.

“Crowdfunder’s are a very intelligent group of people who selflessly make what they care about possible. They generally have a technical or environmental background mixed with a strong passion for the arts. We could not ask for a better group of people to support us in our efforts to make their world a better place to live.”

Todd Janca, the founder of Crowd Energy and the inventor of the Ocean Energy Turbine grew up at Discovery Bay Marine Laboratory in Jamaica and has logged a considerable amount of time on the sea floor piloting Research Submersibles assisting in scientific research.

“ When doing research, It was always a battle to keep the submarine in one location due to the massive amount of force from the ocean currents. Imagine giant rivers flowing on the seafloor. This is how the idea of the Ocean Energy Turbine originated. “

The Ocean Energy Turbine is also unique because we started with marine ecology and preservation as our primary design criteria and then worked within those boundaries to design a highly functional and highly efficient turbine that would not negatively impact the marine environment. Protection of the marine environment is not something we were willing to compromise on and we are very proud of that fact.

(SNMREC) Southeast National Marine Renewable Energy Center at Florida Atlantic University has signed a MOU with Crowd Energy to support development of the Ocean Energy Turbine and to provide an open water test site where the Ocean Energy Turbine can be scientifically evaluated in ocean currents off the coast of south Florida.

Crowd Energy has attracted attention from top industry professionals in renewable energy. Most recently Crowd Energy has been invited to meet with renewable energy heroes “The Solutions Project” founded by Mark Jacobson, Mark Ruffalo, Marco Krapels, and Josh Fox.

With the implementation of EU2030 and EU2050 Energy & Climate Policy, ocean energy is slated to become a major component in moving the world toward clean renewable energy. According to the United Kingdom’s Carbon Trust, the ocean energy market is expected to reach more than $500 billion by 2050. With Crowd Energy’s proven technology in ocean energy, and faithful backing from its supporters at Kickstarter and Indiegogo, it will be a forerunner in clean renewable ocean energy production.

About is the collaborative effort of a small group of Engineers, Inventors, and Scientists specializing in SubSea Engineering, Oceanography, Marine Ecology and Conservation, Electrical Engineering, Fabrication and Design. The group makes great strides in renewable ocean energy research and is slated to have four submerged production scale turbines feeding the power grid by 2015. Todd Janca is the original inventor of the Ocean Energy Turbine and has a number of other energy patents to his credit.
