Wind/Wave Power Not Infinite and Not Renewable, German Scientist Claims

Wind power had always been considered our salvation from peril, our last and most accessible "renewable" resource on this planet. Well, Axel Kleidon, a scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry in Jena, Germany, has another theory: wind and wave power are not so renewable and infinite, after all.

Wave Treader: Joining Wind and Wave Power

By combining wind and wave power, the energy output can be drastically increased. The Wave Treader that enables the mix-up will probably be available on the market by 2011.

An Interesting Approach to a Wave Powered Electricity Generator

I received a message today from a reader suggesting a particular website. I read the information on that particular website, and there was presented a hybrid energy producing system by using the waves as a "catalyst" for the operation of a diesel-powered generator.
