The Energy Story is a general introduction to energy. Chapters explore renewable energy, fossil fuels, electricity, circuits and many other things.

Alternative energy sources - Wave Energy

Wave power is generated when devices are placed on the oceans surface. There are currently only a few wave generators being tested around the world! This site provides a look at the current projects, and how the various technologies work.

8.10.14 - Why Are We Not Building the Voith Wells Generator Wave Energy Converter Everywhere? -  "This wave energy device concept from Voith is as ingenious as it is simple. It is a shore based concrete bunker like installation that allows water to enter a chamber from a submerged opening as the waves move up and down. The water in the chamber rises and falls with the waves pushing a column of air trapped above the water level through a wells turbine generator that makes clean electricity."
