Interesting Report Promotes Ocean Power

oceanpower.jpgRenewable Energy Access just put out a pretty interesting report on the future of “ocean energy” – that combination of often forgotten ways of generating electricity that includes wave and tidal power. Despite the obvious enormity of the ocean’s energy, it’s been very difficult to capture economically. However, according to the report, 2006 is likely to be a landmark year in terms of new technologies and developments that may make it economically feasable in the very near future.
One can’t forget, however, that real energy progress is more likely to be made by a combination of “green” generation techniques and a more widespread adoption of efficiency as a priority. Continuing to be gluttons in one way or another will still have negative consequences.
