Wave energy carving out a spot in the energy transition
EcoGeneration, Other, 07/12/2021, Poppy Johnston
Wave energy has long struggled to find its feet in the clean energy transition but the tide could be turning for this clean energy technology that is already cheap enough to replace diesel generation on remote islands. Off King Island, an island between Tasmania and Victoria in the Bass Strait, a catamaran-shaped structure has been generating energy from waves for the island community. […] According to a report by CSIRO commissioned by the company to assess the expected costs of wave energy generation, the technology is already competitive with diesel generation in remote areas.
