New Wave System Claims Huge Energy per Ton Potential

New Wave System Claims Huge Energy per Ton Potential

Wave energy could become practical using a system that mimics the human heart, say engineers in Sweden. The system allows a wave power generator to produce five times more energy per tonne of device for one-third of the cost of competing state-of-the-art technologies, they claim. Ocean waves could satisfy up to 20 percent of the world’s electricity [pdf] needs if scientists could find a way to harness them, according to London-based nonprofit Carbon Trust. Moreover, ocean waves are more stable and predictable than wind and solar power, making wave energy easier to accommodate on the grid. CorPower plans a pilot installation in the Atlantic Ocean in 2016 However, "there is still no solution to harvest energy from ocean waves that has been proven commercially viable," says Patrik Möller, CEO of CorPower in Stockholm. The challenge lies in developing a device that is strong e...
