from Environment & Energy Publishing
In the wave energy world, progress means having "steel in the water." Now that gadgets are graduating from mere prototypes to pre-commercial machines, their engineers must find the best places to try them out in the open ocean. "You can learn a lot in the lab, but in order to prove commercial viability, you need to prove ocean viability," said Justin Klure, a partner at Portland, Oregon-based Pacific Energy Ventures, who consults on the Azura wave energy device.
