On the Crest of a Wave: A Review of Wave Power Technology
Harris, Fank
School Science Review, v96 n355 p87-93 Nov 2014
The energy potentially available from waves around the coast of the UK far exceeds our domestic and industrial demands and yet, despite much research, numerous patent applications and several pilot schemes, the exploitation of waves for their energy largely remains in transition between development and commercialisation. This article examines the history of wave power and considers the progress of wave energy extraction devices together with their economic, environmental and technical implications.
