Alternative Energy: Wave Power

June 17th, 2007

One of my true passions in life is alternative energy. Many people ask me why I did agriculture for my undergraduate degree – the ultimate answer is that from a young age I was fascinated by the potential of agriculture (expecially sugarcane) as an alternative source of energy.

I remember listening to famous naturalist David Suzuki say:-

In the future, people are going to look back and say ‘we had this great resource (oil) – it could make wonderful things like plastics, medicines and other unique substances and WE JUST BURNT IT – what were we thinking’

It struck a chord with me.

I’ve been watching the potential of alternative energy to open up whole new economies and ways of thinking with great excitement – the hugely successful German experiment with solar energy is one such example.

I recently came across this article about wave power – it makes an interesting read.

    I think it is very good of you researching and studying alternative energy resources. I am doing a report on wave power and it’s advantages and disadvanteges for school. I hope you have some help for me.
