In the book is a nice collection of ways to get energy from waves.

  • The energy you can get from waves is (according to Wikipedia):

Wave Energy.png

ρ = water density (1020 to 1029 kg·m-3 for Seawater)
g = gravity acceleration (9.81 m/s2)
H = wave height


The West Wave Project
Wave Hub, 10 miles off Hayle on north coast of Cornwall
Pelamis Wave Energy Converter
By Pelamis Wave Power
CETO - SeaPowerPlan invention
Hypalon bladders are affixed to a piston that moves inside a tube secured to the seabed. The bladder is a float that rides up and down on underwater wave cycles, and the "piston inside a tube" is a pump that sends high pressure seawater over tubing for remotely generating electricity and/or desalinating the seawater.
