Comments Off on World’s First 1MW Wave Energy Converter Launched in South Australia

Australia’s Oceanlinx launched the world’s first 1MW wave-energy-to-electricity unit in Port MacDonnell, South Australia. The wave energy converter , which was supported by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA), will undergo tests over the next 12 months to determine how well it feeds into the national power grid, and to determine the potential for developing a 10MW version of the device.
