Tasmanian island to be powered by wave energy
In about one month’s time, a remote Tasmanian island will be powered by wave energy. If the test project is successful, King Island residents will enjoy renewable energy harnessed from wave swells. This will make the island one of the few places on Earth where three forms of clean energy are used. Currently, about two-thirds of the island’s energy needs are covered by wind and solar power.
The island of 1,700 people is being used as an example of how renewable energy can be adopted in the modern world. Do you think wave energy could be possible for other coastal communities around the world?Which topic excited you the most? Why? We welcome your comments and thoughts.
