Grant Awarded to Create Wave Test Facility

ocean wave energy manageThe Institute for Advanced Technology and Public Policy at California Polytechnic State University has received a $1.5 million grant to create a facility for testing the efficacy of collecting usable energy from waves.

The Tribune in San Louis Obispo reports that the grant was the second round of funding for the project. The goal of the funding is to determine the cost of the project, what environmental permitting is necessary and the time it would take to build. The story says that an energy wave facility is possible of generating 7,500 MW of electricity. The test facility would generate 10 MW to 20 MW, the story said.

The initial grant in 2014 was for $750,000. It was used to explore test sites five miles off shore.

Reports last year were posted that Azura, a prototype wave energy device, was being tested in Hawaii.
