    I don’t know much about wave-generated power. Is this technology a sustainable way forward?

    Hi Antonia!
    Great question. It’s viable. The biggest problems deploying it so far have been logistical – suitable locations to install them are often quite remote from the coast & thus the power grid.
    But; with the advent of more widespead oceanography; we can study for suitable locations.

    The biggest hurdle left will be to find suitable materials to make them long lasting in tough salty conditions.
