A typical wave energy converter device is either free floating or attached to the sea bottom such that with each up and down movement of the wave the kinetic energy is captured and eventually turned into electrical energy. In this video the engineers at Carnegie Wave Energy take the their latest design prototype out to see and mount it securely to the sea floor.
What a great job? I think that maybe I would pay them to do this everyday. Ok, maybe not everyday.
Enjoy the video.
