the transport and capture of energy created by ocean surface waves. The energy captured is then used for all different kinds of useful work including electricity generation, water desalination, and pumping of water.

Pros

Free fuel generation located near the world's largest populations along the coastline.

Cons

The technology has proven to be complicated and difficult to scale.

Real Talk

There is wave action near huge populations. With more investment this technology may yet prove to be invaluable to the renewable energy transition.
