With testing of wave energy conversion, Hawaii moves one step closer to providing all its energy needs from renewable energy sources

DOE Announces $10 MM For Wave Energy Conversion Testing In Hawaii

DOE intends to test two advanced-stage, near-full-scale wave energy conversion devices at the U.S. Navy’s Wave Energy Test Site on Oahu offshore the Marine Corps Base Hawaii in Kaneohe Bay. The $10 million in wave energy development funding seems like a natural fit in a state renowned for the power of its ocean waves, and it will add momentum to Hawaii’s drive to forge the foundations of a society powered by clean, renewable energy resources.
