The United States Department of Energy (DOE) announced in May 2014 that it will allocate $10 million in wave power projects at Hawaii’s Kaneohe Bay.
This is one of the most exciting energy projects currently underway in the United States, especially since wave energy is still a fledgling technology. The data collected from Kaneohe Bay will have huge implications for tidal energy potential and economic viability, and perhaps most importantly: impacts on local wildlife and habitats. This information can be used to develop more tidal energy projects all over the world, so I can’t wait to see the results!
