US Doubles Down On Wave Energy, $40 Mil For New Test Bed

…a recent overview of all major coastal regions have used “wave power density” in terms of kilowatts per meter of a unit diameter circle to aggregate the total available wave energy resource for a given nation or coastal region. Such a unit-circle approach is not only consistent with accepted global practice, but also more accurately indicates the resource made available by lateral transfer of wave energy along the crests of harmonic components in a multi-directional random seaway, which enables wave diffraction to substantially re-establish wave power densities within a few kilometers of a linear array, even for fixed terminator devices.
