Why wave power isn’t everywhere (yet)

af | 30. april 2022 | Vedvarende energi

​The oceans, that cover most of the planet, are full of energy. So much, in fact, that if we could harness that of all the waves, we’d fulfill global demand three times over. There’s just one small problem: No one has figured out exactly how to make this work long-term. But we could be on the cusp of sea change.

We’re destroying our environment at an alarming rate. But it doesn’t need to be this way. Our channel explores the shift towards an eco-friendly world — and challenges our ideas about what dealing with climate change means. We look at the big and the small: What we can do and how the system needs to change. Every Friday we’ll take a truly global look at how to get us out of this mess.
