What About Wave Energy?

Geoffrey Styles, over at Energy Outlook, recently posted a link to an interesting article in MIT's Technology Review on wave energy development. As the article points out, the U.S. Government has essentially abandoned research and support for the budding wave energy industry, right at the time the technology looks poised to take off. The UK, on the other hand, is pushing to be the world leader in the field, having recently funded the European Marine Energy Centre, which will serve as an international proving ground for developing wave energy technologies.

Renewable Energy Access has more on one of the wave power companies mentioned in the Technology Review article.
