These slides use concepts from my (Jeff Funk) course entitled analyzing hi-tech opportunities to analyze how wave energy is becoming more economically feasible. The potential for wave energy is particularly large in northern parts of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, for example near Canada, the UK, and other parts of Europe. There are a number of emerging designs and these designs benefit from increases in scale. Increasing their scale and other design changes are causing the costs to fall and it is estimated that the cost of electricity from wave energy will fall below that of wind turbines and other sources of clean energy in the near future.
Clipping is a handy way to collect important slides you want to go back to later.
