April 12 -- The oceans generate enough energy for us to give up coal and gas completely, but no one has been able to harness it effectively. Oscillate Power's Triton is a wave harvester that uses a novel design which may be the key to unlocking the power of the ocean.

The wave generator itself looks like it can recoup energy... 1:08 to 1:12. I bet you could build this under a cargo dock. Port of Anchorage first please :D

Too complicated

Your analysis of wind power is flawed. The entire wind market is massively skewed by rediculous subsidies. Take a look at the amount of new wind projects a year versus the status of govt subsidies for that year. Without a way to store energy wind will never work as it is unpredictable. At least wave power is somewhat consistent.

Whilst different wave energy converters are shown, many of the examples given in this video of different wave energy converters are actually tidal energy converters.... (the two energy resources are often confused but are completely different).

Can I use a small part of this video for middle school research?

Calling it now: this will somehow manage to kill massive amounts of fish

Too bad Trump is going to ban it.

At the 2016 Offshore Technology Conference, a presentation was given on harnessing wave energy through piezoelectric materials. It's a similar approach. However, their design was simpler (one part instead of two), and they already are testing large scale prototypes.

Let's hope the boffins succeed. There is no such thing as one foolproof system, but working together . . .? The one thing wave-energy lacks is money for R&D. That's solvable. Let's get it right while we still have a choice; before the fossil-fuel runs out or before the earth becomes uninhabitable And when we encounter a nimby, ridicule him/her.

Hopefully the same efficiency as a wind turbine someday? Why bother then?

2020? I will be dead by then.

There was another one I saw on tv a while back using a plastic tubing or one of those debris tubes used for demo of a building and mounting it to the edge of a pier with a electricity generating turbine that is able to produce power if being turned clockwise or counter. So as the water rose and fell from waves it caused the air inside the tube to be pushed or pulled making the generating motor to produce power. And since the water is constant in motion it would produce infinitely or until the salt water effects the metal on the motor.

There was a wave capture system that was actually able to generate a decent amount of power but the reporter who came to check it out misplaced a decimal point in the power output when he reported it and the funding collapsed. I can't remember where it was or who made it, but I believe it was someone over in the UK. If I recall the design correctly, it was a line of flat floats arranged perpendicular to the shore that moved up and down with the waves to pump hydrolic fluid through a turbine.

water power cleanest and safest try making the shithead governments understand that all they are interested in is nuclear energy fukin dimwits
Ben Sterlini
Promising stuff, I hope it becomes a success

if possible this can get to africa
i can imagine how useful it will eventually be
thanks to the work of innovation.
i might help with it one day

This is how we power things. Many professional people and scientists have made TheSolutionsProject to prove all 50 states can use green power. Also, U of Michigan has made something unique called Vortex Hydro Power, which can even be done in streams with less powerful currents. If these ideas were pushed to the right people, we can do it easily. Check the 2 ideas I listed above folks, I've done research on this for days and days of my life lol.

Be Amazed at these top 10 renewable energy solutions! Algae - Though a green eyesore on the water, algae’s potential was first suggested in 1942 as a source of food and fuel. It wasn’t taken seriously till the 1970s, however, when oil prices surged due to the oil embargo, forcing the US government to look into it. Carnegie Wave Energy - Australians have taken their love of surfing above the waves to another level – harnessing the power of waves below the surface thanks to Carnegie’s CETO technology. Tidal Power - A few other ways of harnessing tidal power include using Horizontal Axis Tidal Turbines . Osmotic Power - Osmotic power is generated when salt water meets fresh water – something that happens in nature when rivers flow to the sea. Solar and Wind Power - Why use solar panels when you have to deal with the night, bad weather, and cloudy days? By putting a solar array in space, we can have unlimited access to solar power which can be transmitted to homes in much the same way as cable channels.

Human Power - While pedal power has been around for a while, foot power is new thanks to Pavegen – a company that harnesses the power of footsteps. Lava Geothermal Generators - Iceland already uses geothermal energy from its many steam vents, but in 2014, it accidentally dug directly into a magma chamber. Turbulent Micro Hydro Power Plant - Turbulent came up with a simple whirlpool turbine that can power dozens of homes using the power of rivers and canals without harming fish. Batteries - The problem with solar and wind power lies in the fact that these sources of energy tend to be generated when they aren't always needed. Windmills - Texas prides itself on big things, but researchers at the University of Texas Arlington bucked that trend with micro-windmills .
