Ocean Waves Energy Tapped for Clean Electricity
The use of ocean waves energy is in its infancy today, but can lead to clean, affordable and renewable electrical power. Right now, it's probably 15 years behind wind energy, but it has a vast potential. For example, experts estimate that 0.2 percent of the ocean's untapped energy could power the entire world. And Oregon may lead future of wave energy with a project of the deployment of 200 buoys, each of them about 12 feet wide and 12 feet tall.

These buoys, located off Reedsport, Oregon, could be installed for an estimated initial cost of $5 million and would produce 50 megawatts, enough to power the business district of downtown Portland. But Oregon is not the only state looking at wave energy technology. Other coastal states and several other countries are also searching to produce clean electricity from ocean waves. Read this overview other details and references.
