A silent but informative introduction to how wave power works.
The power in our seas is vast - and wave power is at an innovative stage. According to government and industry figures, wave and tidal power combined could meet 12.5 per cent of today's electricity demand - economically and practically - by 2025.It's an opportunity we can't afford to let slip.

Machinery able to exploit wave power is generally known as a wave energy converter (WEC).
Wave-power generation is not currently a widely employed commercial technology, although there have been attempts to use it since at least 1890.
