Ocean Energy Needs a Lift to Go Mainstream

Rochelle Toplensky writes in The Wall Street Journal that ocean energy needs a financial lift to go mainstream.

  • Energy harvested from waves is renewable and also more predictable than solar or wind.
  • Right now the biggest impediment to ocean energy becoming mainstream is cost, but some companies in Scotland and Hawaii have shown that it can be a commercially viable source of energy.

“Ocean energy has come a long way, but has more to prove. Unlike the tides it harvests, how the market develops from here may still be too unpredictable for most private investors.”
