Global wave and tidal stream energy production has risen tenfold over the last decade, reflecting global efforts to identify commercialisation pathways for ocean energy technologies, according to a new report. Ocean Energy Systems’ (OES) annual report shows cumulative energy produced from wave and tidal stream sources surged from less than 5GWh in 2009 to 45GWh in 2019. Numerous other wave and tidal stream devices have been deployed in open-sea waters for testing, while further ‘push and pull’ mechanisms are stimulating the ocean energy sector in various regions of the world.
