“Wave Hub” Underway Off Coast of UK

It’s hard to say if wave energy will ever live up to its potential – the energy in the ocean is practically limitless, while harnessing it is very cumbersome to say the least. Nonetheless, three companies have been lined up to build the world’s first full scale wave energy facility, known as the “wave hub”, 10 miles off the coast of Cornwall, England. (See press release here).
The three firms take three different technological approaches to the task of harnessing the ocean’s energy, and together will narrow down a design and plan for the actual project which hopes to achieve funding in the near future.
