August 9, 2016 a special day for all of us at Waves4Power. Today the WaveEL buoy has been in the harsh waters of Runde for 6 months. In this location the buoy has negotiated winds of 65 miles/hour and more, in waves that top off as high as 15 m, without complaining. And you can see for yourselves, the buoy looks brand new!

Wave energy has potential to supply close to 1/3 of US 4,000 TWh annual electricity needs. In a 2011 study – by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) – of the U.S. wave energy resource potential it was estimated at 2,640 TWh/yr. While an abundance of wave energy is available, it cannot be fully harnessed for a variety of reasons, therefore, it is important to consider how much resource is recoverable. EPRI’s estimate that the total recoverable resource along the U.S. shelf edge is 1,170 TWh/yr, or close to 1/3 of the 4,000 TWh of electricity used annually in the United States.

The WaveEL buoy has been on site at Runde since Feb. 11. It has already experienced two major storms with wind speeds exceeding 50 knots and with maximum waves estimated at between 12 and 15 meters on Feb. 17. All looking good so far.
