Quotes

Professor Peter Stansby of University of Manchester, developer of the new line absorber M4M Wave Power, said: "Conversion of mechanical power into electricity is a generic component of any wave energy converter. As a new developer striving to improve wave energy capture the WavePOD consortium approach to hydraulic PTO development is a great bonus since hydrodynamic expertise in wave-body interaction is quite different from that for hydraulic systems.”"
"This is due in part to the fragmented nature of current research and development, which is largely commissioned by individual manufacturers."
