EPRI Issues Final Report on Wave Development


Via Renewable Energy Access, comes this article, Economies of Scale Could Swell Ocean Energy (2/2/05) that reports on a new report by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) suggesting that generation of electricity from wave energy may be economically feasible in the near future. The study was carried out by EPRI in collaboration with the DOE's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and energy agencies and utilities from six states. The study determined that wave energy conversion may be economically feasible within the territorial waters of the United States as soon as investments are made to enable wave technology to reach a cumulative production volume of 10,000 - 20,000 MW.(Land-based wind turbines, in comparison, generate 40,000 MW.) The EPRI report can be viewed here. (note - I was interviewed for the section of the report dealing with permitting requirements).
