‘Blowhole’ energy to power Tassie island

Renewable wave technology that creates power by mimicking a blowhole will soon make a remote island off Tasmania even greener. When the mostly above-water unit is connected in about a month, King Island in Bass Strait will be powered by three renewables – wave, wind and solar. […] Studies by the CSIRO show Australian’s southern coast has great potential to generate energy from waves due to its large swell fuelled by strong winds.
