Why Wave Energy?
Compared to wind and solar, wave-generated electricity is more consistent and predictable. Tidal, ocean/river currents, ocean thermal, and geothermal electricity are limited to few locations worldwide. Unlike nuclear, wave electricity is environmentally benign and safe. New sites for stored hydro are limited by the negative impact on the environment.
60% of the world population lives within 50 miles of a coastline so wave electricity transmission costs are minimized.
Plus the basic physics……water is 900 times more dense than wind so the power curve stacks in our favor. Water is virtually incompressible and thus energy capture and transmission is very efficient.
