    U.S. WAVE ENERGY GETS A BIG TEST

    Water water everywhere, but is it too soon for wave energy?

    Jaclyn Brandt, July 8, 2015 (Fierce Energy)

    “…[Wave energy technology] still has a ways to go in the United States. However, a new development is giving researchers in the U.S. a chance to look at the long-term effects of wave energy…The test device, called Azura, was launched in a 30-meter test berth at the United States Navy's Wave Energy Test Site (WETS) in Kaneohe Bay, on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. It was supported by the Department of Energy (DOE) and the U.S. Navy...Azura is a grid-connected wave energy converter (WEC), and is being independently tested by the University of Hawaii in open ocean…According to DOE, more than 50 percent of the population of the United States lives within 50 miles of a coastline, and many coastlines in the country have strong wave and tidal resources…Because of this, transmission from wave energy could become economically viable…” click here for more
