Wave Power Gets Viable Technology

The technology that creates wind and solar power has become ubiquitous. It is now common to see efficient, cost-effective wind turbines and solar panels ieverywhere. But another form of potential renewable energy, wave energy stemming from ocean currents and tides, has so far not developed a viable technology to deliver it. The challenges are many, from corrosive salt water to unpredictable water movement patterns. Now Siemens, the largest manufacturing company in Europe, has come up with a new turbine design for wave power plants that might be the solution, according to Tidal Energy Today. The HydroAir is not only efficient in capturing wave energy, but promises a quantum leap infinancial feasibility. Get ready for yet another major disruptive moment in the fast-moving world of renewable energy.
