UNREALIZED OPPORTUNITY

Offshore wave energy is an untapped source of abundant, reliable, clean power

Renewable source of energy which can be cost competitive with other forms of energy, if given the necessary development Efficient technologies can be developed to harness and convert wave energy to electricity, without polluting emissions Wave energy can be generated near shore and easily delivered to large populations--37% of the world's population lives within 60 miles of a shoreline and 70% lives within 200 miles In temperate zones, wave power potential is highest in the winter months, when electrical demand also is highest
