Look at What Wave Energy Can Do For You


Renewable energy doesn't just mean clean air; in many cases, it means new jobs. This article, New Wave Energy Project to Create 40 Island Jobs (Herald, 6/17/05) offers a real life example of how ocean projects can stimulate local economies:

AROUND 40 jobs are expected to be created at the former fabrication yard at Arnish on Lewis, producing tube segments for the world's first commercial wave-farm project off the coast of Portugal. Camcal, the yard's operator, announced yesterday that it had been selected by Ocean Power Delivery (OPD) to fabricate the main tube segments for the Pelamis wave energy converter.
The project, to be located off Portugal's northern coast, will initially consist of three Pelamis P-750 machines.

    You must have spent a lot of time putting together your blog. You must be proud of it.

    I am planning to start a blog soon - to go with my website on edison chouest offshore.

    Do you have any advice for someone just starting their own blog?

    If you do, do you think you could post a quick message on your blog here so all of us could benefit from your wisdom?

    Thanks
