This wave energy generator resembles a spine and claims to be cheaper than fossil fuels.

The search is on for new ways to harness renewable resources to supply our rising energy needs. The key enigma is why ocean and sea waves haven't been used in carbon emission reduction strategies yet. To do so, several methods have been tried. All attempts to produce a system that can be scaled up, from floating buoys to underwater generators that look into tap into pressure variations, have failed. Recently, there has, however, been some success. We wrote earlier this month about how an Australian business has been using its special wave energy converter to power homes for more than a year. Now, a floating spine-like device has also demonstrated promise. The Waveline Magnet Sea Wave Energy Limited (SWEL), a company based in Cyprus, has been developing technology to harness wave ene...
