“…Unlike other renewable energy solutions such as solar or wind which can be intermittent, the ocean is something that can be utilized 24 hours a day…[There are four categories of technologies to capture ocean energy, depending on the location and the type of device, tidal, wave, thermal, and currents. Wave energy could amount to 11 percent of Australia’s energy supply mix by 2050]…In Scotland at the European Marine Energy Centre, a tidal turbine energy recovery system is being [tested] which is capable of generating 2MW. It is expected to a have a commercial offering available in 2018…[Bombora wave power recently released a feasibility study for] their mWave energy converters to be used at a site of the coast of Portugal which will generate 60MW…Swedish company Minesto use’s tidal power and ocean currents in its renewable energy technology called Deep Green…[Wave energy’s potential is decades behind other renewables] such as Solar and Wind and therefore its costs and feasibility lack in comparison…” click here for more
