Converting wave energy into electricity might seem far-fetched, but ocean power is gradually joining the ranks of wind and solar as a source of renewable energy. Thanks for the informative post. The University of Exeter is collaborating with Ocean Power Technologies (OPT), a wave energy device developer, to exploit and further develop the results from this research. He came up with the idea using a viscoelastic "carpet of wave-energy conversion" (CWEC) placed over a network of vertically oriented springs and generators on the coastal seafloor. But with interest in renewable energy at an all-time high, steps are just now being taken to turn this idea into a reality. The flexible carpet responds just like mud: as Modelling the interaction of ocean waves with the proposed carpet, Alam was able to show that the system can easily absorb 50% of incident wave energy over short distances of about 10 m. At present, however, technologies to extract and convert energy from the sea are far less advanced than other renewables, such as solar and wind, and remain as yet largely uncommercial without the intervention of government subsidy. STAC awards $200K to Electro Standards in Collaboration with University of Rhode Island for Development of Direct-Drive Wave Energy Conversion Devices. WET-NZ Ocean Wave Energy Converter connects to NNMREC's Sentinel via the neon green cable for data collection.

Can anyone recommend free software to model and predict the amount of energy that can be captured by an ocean wave energy conversion device (OWEC)? The notion of harnessing energy from the sea has captured the human imagination for years. Ocean.Wave.Energy.Conversion.pdf. The WEC is a new, highly efficient technology that harnesses the immense, renewable energy contained in ocean waves. Algorithm Doubles Electricity Yield From Ocean Waves. Anyone can see that the ocean is a powerful force of nature, and according to the Ocean Energy Council the typical 4 foot 10 second wave crashing onto the beach releases about 35,000 horsepower per mile of shoreline.[1] Waves form as wind moves across the surface of the water causing ripples, Also, here is another example of a potential way to convert wave energy into electricity.
