This Device Uses The Power Of Waves To Make Ocean Water Drinkable

Posted on Tuesday, January 10th, 2017 by

The ingenious SAROS design is meant for places where drinking water and electricity are scarce. Off the coast of North Carolina, two friends are developing a new way to desalinate water—a notoriously high-energy, high-cost process. Their solution: use the power of the ocean itself to clean the water of its impurities. Justin Sonnett and Chris […]

Powered by the Wave: Tidal Wave Energy Generation Becomes a Reality in U.S.

Posted on Tuesday, January 10th, 2017 by

Albeit a younger technology, tidal wave energy generation is a prospective source of endlessly renewable power. Much of the world is involved in maturing this technology, including countries in Europe and even China, but the US does not have much of a presence in this emerging field. That may be changing, however, as the country’s first […]

Wave power could revolutionize the renewable-energy game

Posted on Tuesday, August 30th, 2016 by

Like a large, slowly building swell miles from shore, the wave-power revolution has quietly and gradually gained momentum. And this month it began the crest: The Department of Energy announced it would allocate as much as $40 million in fundingto develop of the nation’s first open-water wave-energy-testing facility in a location to be determined. When it comes […]

New Swedish wave energy buoy boasts 5x the output of existing technology

Posted on Friday, April 8th, 2016 by

We already harness energy from the sun, the wind, and many other natural processes for our own uses, and electricity generated from ocean waves could be the next big thing in renewables. Known as wave energy, the concept is relatively new and technologies are still a bit rudimentary (and expensive), especially when it comes to […]
