Is Wave Energy in Our Future?

The waves are converted into energy through turbines that are either placed on the surface or under the ocean. These turbines are activated by the force of water. They spin and produce energy, which is transmitted to the grid.

Portugal takes a step closer to commercial wave energy using the technical capability of AW-Energy's WaveRoller® to power up electricity for local homes.

"At this phase of the installation, we are collecting data 24/7 to monitor the performance of the device using motion, pressure and strain gauge sensors that are engineered in to its panel, foundation and bearings," said Christopher Ridgewell, CEO of AW-Energy Oy.

A Renewable Energy Solution Using the Planet's Largest Battery: The Ocean

When you watch a wave crashing onto the beach, it's a culmination of energy collected over the entire ocean's surface.

Seabased to Bring Wave Energy to the Caribbean

Bermuda General Agency has purchased two 20 MW wave parks from Seabased AB of Sweden. The company hopes to pivot the power source of the Caribbean islands from fossil fuels to renewable, sustainable energy from the ocean waves to the grid.

The Future of Offshore Renewable Energy

While offshore wind has come the farthest and gets the most attention, there are other offshore generation resources that may start making waves in the near future too.

Robotics principles help wave energy converters better absorb power of ocean waves

Phys.org: "We are working to create methodologies and technologies that private companies can harness to create wave energy devices that will enable them to sell power to the U.S. grid at a competitive price,"

B.C. wave energy holds huge renewable potential say experts

Wanyee Li for Ottawa Metro: A group of scientists say now is the time to invest in wave energy because B.C. has the potential to become a destination for wave-technology companies around the world.

Wello's Penguin WEC generates electricity at EMEC grid-connected wave test site

From Power-Technology: High-technology company Wellos Penguin wave energy converter (WEC) has successfully generated power into the national grid off the west coast of Orkney in Scotland, UK.

Edinburgh technology duo secure £2.5 million to turn wave power into electricty

Its a problem that has long thwarted wave energy pioneers - how to transform the slow back and forth motion of waves into a reliable and cost-effective stream of electricity.

Catch wave power in floating nets

Zhong Lin Wang for Nature:  Nature provides three sources of energy for free: sunlight, air and gravity. Solar and wind power are increasingly exploited, gravity less so. Hydraulic power plants harvest energy from flowing rivers. Tidal energy can be gathered along some inlets and coasts. But few places are suitable for dams or barrages, which can also damage the environment. By contrast, oceans cover about 70% of Earth’s surface. Wave energy is plentiful day and night, whatever the weather. Capturing it requires little land and raises few safety or security concerns. Yet hardly any of this ‘blue energy’ is being generated. Today’s wave farms produce no more than 1–10 megawatts at any one time, enough to power a town. No commercial wave farms currently exist.   Full article:
