Floating “Power Buoy” Creates Electricity from Ocean Waves!

This buoy uses the upward and downward motion of waves (combined with the weight of a metal plate) to move a hydraulic piston and this results in electricity. This does not compete with wind & solar generators. This complements them. Big storm waves carry a lot of power but it turns out that the bulk of the wave energy is provided by moderate sized waves that occuring frequently.

Did you hear about this already? or is this new to you??

  1. It’s a great idea! good! Do you solve the vibration problems? How about the range of tide? As you see, you have to reduce the vibration of wave energy device to generate electricity on land from waves at sea. Because, the main system of wave energy device is on the sea surface. The vibration reduce the electricity generation! If you can fix submerged buoy tethered to the seabed well, you’ll make a new wave energy device. Because, the vibration makes many kinds of problems! The vibration’s caused by wind, waves and external forces. New Floating Body Stabilizer has been created in South Korea. You need this Idea. The Floating Body Stabilizers generate drag force immediately when Floated or submerged buoy is being rolled and pitched on the sea. Recently, this Floating Body Stabilizer’s using to reduce the Vibration of Floating Solar Panels in South Korea. You can see New Floating Body Stabilizer videos in YouTube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moO–q5B92k, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nA_xFp5ktbU&feature=youtu.be.
    Anyways, very interesting.
    Good lock!
