    Chernobyl Taught Her The Value Of Ocean Energy

    For Chernobyl survivor, breaking the waves to power the future is 'personal'

    Catherine Armitage, February 25, 2017 (The Sydney Morning Herald)

    “…In partnership and with engineers, entrepreneurs Inna Braverman and David Leb developed] a technology that converts wave power to electricity with floaters attached to onshore structures such as breakwaters or jetties…[Eco Wave Power has] projects in Gibraltar, Mexico, Chile and China…[and Australia’s coastline could produce 11% of the nation’s energy by 2050 with] wave converters hanging off breakwaters, jetties, wharves and piers…Ms Braverman was born in Ukraine in the fallout zone within two weeks of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. As a baby she nearly died of a seizure due to chronic respiratory illness caused by the meltdown; she was saved by mouth to mouth resuscitation from her mother. To her, that makes the quest for safe, renewable energy ‘personal’…Eco Wave Power claims advantage in having all its infrastructure onshore. That means shorter transmission distances and none of the expensive complications that come with working in the open ocean…[Ocean energy could eventually produce] 100 per cent to 400 per cent of current global demand for electricity…” click here for more
