NW Wave-Technology Update November 19, 2008

A great Seattle Times article about NW wave-energy development. Here is a Preview.

In the past three years, more than 100 preliminary permits have been issued nationally for wave- and tidal-energy projects, and nearly 100 more are pending approval. But only one has won a license to operate — a small wave-energy development off Washington’s northwest coast.

That project is still awaiting state and federal permits, and its British Columbia-based developer, Finavera Renewables, doesn’t know when the first devices will go in the water. It doesn’t help that a wave-power buoy the company was testing off the Oregon coast unexpectedly sank last year.
