Wave Energy Development Links



Wikipedia is always a good start:




Wave Energy Centre (WavEC) in Portugal is involved in many European ocean energy project, and has many intresting links in their website.




EMEC European Marine Energy Centre has a good overview of various types of wave energy converters – WEC.

Saltire Prize

'The X-prize of renewables'. The Saltire Prize is a £10 million award by the Scottish Government. The Saltire Prize will be awarded to the team that best demonstrates commercially viable wave or tidal stream energy in Scottish water. The technology will need to achieve a minimum electrical output of 100 GWh over a continuous two year period using only the power of the sea.
