Wing Waves: Harnessing Deep Ocean Movement To Produce Electricity
A research team has designed a pair of metal wings that can tap waves to generate clean energy.
Researchers from the Florida Institute of Technology are working on an interesting project-to develop an undersea system that can produce clean electricity. The Wing Waves are a pair of metal wings that flap to and fro with the ocean’s swells, harvesting the waves’ motion occurring deep beneath the ocean surface. This motion is eventually converted into electricity that can be routed through cables to the surface.
