Australia just introduce an alternative energy source that will blow your mind: sea waves!
Using Perth Wave Energy Project’s CETO 5 wave energy generators developed by Carnegie Wave Energy Limited, the project turns the movement of the ocean into renewable, sustainable energy – and can make potable water via desalinization as well.
Currently, the CETO 5 wave generator is being used to provide energy to a nearby naval base, but future installments of the electricity-generating technology are in planning stages. 3 CETO units channeling energy from the ocean are plugged into a power grid for 14000 cumulative hours of energy.
The below video explains how the CETO 5 works.
240kW buoys tethered to water pumps covert the movement of the ocean waves into high-powered water which is then used to create hydroelectricity to power a reverse-osmosis desalination plant.
Australia is one of many places on the planet that can harness wave energy effectively to provide electric energy to its citizens, but there are many more locations around the planet that could benefit from similar technology.
There will soon be no need to burn fossil fuels, once technologies like these, and those created by genius minds like Nikola Tesla, are available for the common man and woman.
