  1. Good presentation! At 9:46 he says – we will loose space to work, they're right. Coastal Wave Energy Converters are much more sensible than those 4-5km out in the sea. Best so far is ECO WAVE POWER, check it out!

  2. Wht will happen if many people drive speed boats same direction flow direction one direction like circle ⭕️

  3. This is the most practical, simple and affective Wave Generator that’s been running non stop for a few years without any problems! https://youtu.be/gcStpg3i5V8

  4. Yes. Wave energy using zig zag funnel walls with paddle blades tethered to generators. Or better yet: Think of million ton floating islands tethered to 2 bending steel and concrete levers (bridges) 10 miles long… Are you thinking yet? Generate that. I just saved the planet. The levers store the energy. Or just keep doodling and posting silly videos for the next 100 years.

  5. 6:05 What a bullshit excuse to try and shut down advancement in wave energy. You're worried about one device at the bottom of the ocean when there is billions upon billions of garbage and plastic floating around in it. Get over yourself. Wave energy is far more important and crucial than your fishing anyway.,

  6. It seems people in this vid are not learning from other people’s work in this area, as I’ve seen several YT vids of wave energy devices that are way better than the prototypes in this vid. Here’s my favourite example of a wave generator that is attached to the coast and can even be landscaped in so only the side facing the Sea is visible. If these were spaced around the coast they would generate a lot of energy that is constant!. https://youtu.be/gcStpg3i5V8

  7. Wouldn't the much less turbulent but equally powerful energy contained in undersea currents make more sense?

  8. Canadians in sheer awe of their sheer untrammeled sheer brilliance again?
    It is so utterly hard to live at the utter cutting edge from so utterly high above.
    Their TV production teams are just as breathlessly amazed of their isolated magnificence.
    Even with the sound off you can hear the dendrites limp, collide, splutter, apologise and stumble.

    On behalf of the Western World may I offer my sheer utter condolences that you ever were invited to the First World party. We really didn't know. Soz.

  9. They are making this all to complicated. They should be using these power making devices to make compressed air, pipe the air to a generator. Why make a complicated assembly for each device, when you can use a simple design to just make air. Also using air will allow a controlled release of elec.

  10. This crap is NEVER going to work being so complicated, the solution is right in front of you, and ill give you a hint, it does NOT include electronics in the water….. Think more simplisticly, what does nature give us and how does it generate energy thats mindblowing…. Ill let you stew in that, and maybe ill come back and give you the perfect solution. In the meantime, this is all a waste of time when its right under your nose… Use your imagination, not a computer….

  11. As a person who votes green every time, I can say this looks like a real waste of time and resources. Please stop. Go with OTEC instead. Tidal has some major opportunities if the land is just right like in the Bay of Fundy. Wave energy? fail! Just put up a wind turbine the air there is much less corrosive than the salt water.

    BC needs geothermal power plants too.

    Wave energy must be funded by fossil fuel people who want to prove green energy does not work.

  12. A below surface or sea-bottom azimuthing hydroelectric turbine, based on the Rolls Royce permanent magnet azimuthing Tunnel thruster – could be inverted just like an electric motor is inverted to become a generator – what would be described as a 'Permanent Magnet Linear Generator' – why isn't this already being done?
    Look up 'Royce permanent magnet azimuthing Tunnel thruster' – to see the genius of the design.
    It's made to be virtually maintenance free and immune to wear and tear, due to internal magnetic levitation/repulsion. These Rolls Royce tunnel drives are used to propel large ships, with a far superior power and efficiency rating over shaft and gear driven drives – all that gearing and the need for a drive-shaft is eliminated by this Circular Magnet Rotor and Electric Coil windings Stator design. No need for cooling or oil circulation pumps, as it is already designed to be an underwater unit with no gears or abrading parts to wear. It's a wonder why they aren't already doing this.
    Imagine this marine drive unit inverted to generate power. You gotta check this out.

  13. rather than up-down movement i more preferred wave's most brute force: the surge, when it touch down the sea floor at the sore line.

  14. Thank you for this video. It was useful to me for my new italian music song on clean energy by water. Her you can watch other videos on this topic, I put you video inside this playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLjwm-fFRue92GsdhYKKCRH3H4yMarLuPU

  15. So i like the IDEA of this, but to be reliable like all other forms of green energy, economies of scale must be achieved to keep it consistent. Otherwise, like Germany, they have to supplement "down times" with fossil fuels, which negates the point. So how are you gonna deal with the miles of coastline taken up with underwater cables, mounts, ect where fishermen and moving vessels have to move about? And what if Ted Turner doesn't' like the view?

  16. I have reduced future energy needs: I have zero kids and so zero future problems. Everyone dies, don't make new temporary humans to burden themselves and the future. It's cruel, unnecessary and futile.

  17. Η ΔΥΝΑΜΗ ΤΗΣ ΦΛΌΓΑΣ ΒΡΙΣΚΕΤΑΙ ΣΤΗΝ ΑΚΡΗ ΤΟ ΙΔΙΟ ΣΥΒΕΝΕΙ ΚΑΙ ΜΕ ΤΟ ΚΥΜΑ. ΓΙΑΤΙ ΔΕΝ ΠΕΡΝΕΤΕ ΤΗΝ ΕΝΕΡΓΕΙΑ ΤΟΥ ΚΥΜΑΤΟΣ ΑΠΟ ΤΗΝ ΑΚΡΗ ΤΟΥ Η ΘΠΟΙΑ ΕΙΝΑΙ ΑΠΟΘΗΚΕΥΣΙΜΗ ΚΑΙ ΝΑ ΧΡΗΣΙΜΟΠΟΙΗΘΕΙ ΜΕ ΠΟΙΚΙΛΟΥΣ ΤΡΟΠΟΥΣ.ΔΙΧΩΣ ΝΑ ΒΑΖΟΥΜΕ ΕΜΠΟΔΙΑ ΜΕΣΑ ΣΤΗΝ ΘΑΛΑΣΣΑ,ΚΑΙ ΝΑ ΓΙΝΟΝΤΕ ΕΓΚΑΤΑΣΤΑΣΕΙΣ ΚΑΙ ΣΥΝΤΗΡΙΣΕΙΣ ΣΤΑ ΣΤΕΓΝΑ

  18. ΠΟΣΟ ΘΑ ΗΘΕΛΑ ΝΑ ΗΜΟΥΝ ΚΑΘΑΡΙΣΤΗΣ ΣΕ ΕΝΑ ΠΑΝΕΠΙΣΤΗΜΙΟ ΚΑΙ ΝΑ ΔΙΑΣΚΕΔΑΖΩ ΜΕ ΟΛΕΣ ΑΥΤΕΣ ΤΙΣ ΔΑΠΑΝΗΡΕΣ ΚΑΤΑΣΚΕΥΕΣ ΓΙΑ ΚΥΜΑΤΙΚΗ ΕΝΕΡΓΕΙΑ.ΕΝΩ ΤΟ ΚΥΜΑ ΜΑΣ ΕΡΧΕΤΑΙ ΜΟΝΟ ΤΟΥ ,ΣΤΗΝ ΑΜΟΥΔΙΑ ,ΣΤΑ ΒΡΑΧΙΑ,ΣΤΟΥΣ ΚΥΜΑΤΟΘΡΑΥΣΤΕΣ. ΕΝΩ ΕΚΕΙ ΜΠΟΡΟΥΜΕ ΝΑ ΤΟΥ ΚΑΝΟΥΜΕ ΜΙΑ ΜΑΛΑΚΗ ΥΠΟΔΟΧΗ ΚΑΙ ΝΑ ΠΑΡΟΥΜΕ ΠΟΛΥ ΠΕΡΙΣΟΤΕΡΗ ΕΝΕΡΓΕΙΑ.ΚΑΙ ΝΑ ΜΗΝ ΜΑΣ ΔΗΜΗΟΥΡΓΕΙ ΖΗΜΙΕΣ.ΕΙΜΑΙ ΣΤΗΝ ΔΙΑΘΕΣΗ ΠΑΝΤΟΣ ΕΝΔΙΑΦΕΡΟΥΜΕΝΟΥ

  19. So why aren't there more Islay Limpet generator stations? A fairly small station generating about 250 kilowatts?

  20. So much for the oil tycoons clandestinely stepping in to prevent alternative energy technologies from taking hold! Hence is the greed of the oil tycoons!

  21. No-one can afford the luxury of thinking they have all the answers. It will take a combination of these sources to replace fossil fuels. Now, before they become essential, is the best time to develop these technologies. The one thing we all agree on is the fact that fossil fuels cannot last forever, and in some cases, are already in relatively short supply.

  22. I think it is great that this work is being done. We need multiple options. Wind and solar is great, but there are plenty of places where solar doesn't do that well, and wind can also be unreliable.

  23. Instead of using wave energy to produce electricity they should use it to pressurize the salt water to provide input to reverse osmosis desalination plants. A better way to "make" electricity is to not make it. Install LEDs instead of tungsten bulbs. That saves 95 percent of your electricity bill. Fresh water is needed in a lot of coastal communities around the United States.
    You could feed fresh desalinated water into the "water grid" of Los Angeles and charge rich celebrities a premium to have green lawn in a water shortage. It's "their" water, they're not depriving the great unwashed (get it, the great unwashed?) of any of "their" water. It's analogous to Tesla. A electric car for which is a toy for rich people who want to indulge themselves. Similarly, expensive desalinated water for rich people who want to play golf during a water advisory in August.
    This would provide the startup capital to invest in new technologies and find inefficiencies. It would also disprove all the flaky ideas that don't cut the mustard.

  24. I had to start a new comment as it cut me off typing on the last one. Tidal power is great for remote communities along the coast and may play into the grid if a reliable design is really put into production. Nuclear is the way to go and has been since the 1960's when reactors using thorium were developed that cannot melt down and are much less radioactive in operation then the emissions of a coal power plant. Wind turbines are high maintenance, noisy and kill birds. Solar may have its place in areas like the deserts of the southwestern US, or as I use solar to keep electric fence batteries charged! Our economy does not have to be destroyed to utilize these technologies. I work in agriculture and the oilfield and I quite like being a player in providing energy to run your car or heat your house. People need to stop the histaria over climate change. It always has happened and always will happen! If you want a good cause; Go Tie Yourselves to the Trees in the Amazon!!!

  25. Congratulations on only mentioning greenhouse gas emissions a couple times. That must have been hard for you cbc reporters:( Oregon is a nice state eh! Loved it when I was down there! Must be nice to get paid to report on vacation. I am not a global warming nut, however I have believed in climate change since grade 3 when I learned about the ice ages that have covered all of canada with glaciers in the past. The evidence is everywhere where I live of these glaciers receding. I also understand that super volcanos like Yellowstone will cause an ice age lickaty split. That would be bad for Canada! Duh! Some moderate only very slightly contributed to by human emissions of Co2 is actually good for agriculture. Co2 is what plants use to convert to oxygen. If this also warms the planet agriculture in northern latitudes will greatly benifit as the did in Europe from 900-1300 AD. I have always supported alternatives like tidal power and they have their place.

  26. tidal water reservoir?
    tide comes in twice a day, it's cheap to build and there's little to no maintenance.
