    ISRAELIS RIDE THE WAVES

    Surf’s up for Israeli wave power; Eco Wave Power’s technology is leading the way in renewable energy, with the potential to provide electricity for thousands

    David Shamah, September 25, 2015 (The Times of Israel)

    “The wind may not blow and the sun may not shine, but waves are pretty constant…[making] wave power a better and more reliable source of renewable energy…[F]ew companies have embraced the idea of mass-producing energy using wave power than Israel’s Eco Wave Power (EWP)…[It recently became] eligible to receive a production quota and connect its wave-energy power plant and sell electricity to Israel’s power grid. This would be a first…[T]here are several wave-energy generation test systems in the US, Europe and Australia, with several commercial systems currently under development…[Studies have shown] a cluster of machines that takes up an area of less than half a square mile and that captures waves and turns them into energy…could generate over 30 megawatts of electricity, or enough for more than 20,000 households…[But wave power is] expensive to deploy, the devices used to capture waves are subject to corrosion from the saltwater, and the power transmission cables that must be installed to transport the converted energy to a generator could have a negative impact on marine life...drawbacks that are addressed by [EWP]…” click here for more
