The figures above indicate potential power available in kilowatts per meter. As is clear from the map, there is an enormous amount of energy in the ocean simply waiting to be harvested. Given that the Earth’s surface is 70% covered in ocean, this is a vast untapped energy resource. In future entries, we’ll delve into the major harvest technologies, both mechanical and thermal, and we’ll take a look at the companies attempting to make a commericial success in this area.

Stay tuned for more information.
