ORE Seminar: The Fascinating Problem of Harnessing Energy from Ocean Waves

May 8, 1:00pm - 2:00pm
Mānoa Campus, POST 723

Harnessing energy from ocean waves in a cost-effective manner remains one great unsolved problem of our time. While great strides toward solving this problem were made in the 1970s to early 1980s, since then progress has been slow. What have we gained from many years of research into this fascinating subject, and how can we move forward? This talk will give an overview of the history and theory behind ocean wave energy conversion, as well as outline some research directions toward identifying cost-effective solutions to harness wave energy and thus realizing the potential of wave energy to make a substantial contribution to our future energy supply.
