Craig Stevens is a physical oceanographer with a focus on environmental fluid mechanics in extreme environments. He holds a joint position at NIWA and the University of Auckland. His use of observational techniques takes him to a variety of locations ranging from Antarctica to Cook Strait. The work is mainly about turbulence, stratification and waves - and how entities react/behave/exist in such fluid environments. From the energy perspective he has looked at how to optimally locate tidal turbines so that they extract energy effectively, whilst minimizing environmental degradation.

In this talk he will talk about energy in the ocean and international efforts to convert some of it into electricity and how this has intertwined with the vagaries of international geopolitics over the past few decades. It will include relevance to NZ and results of trials
