wave energy to reverse this situation – Energy Magazine







One solution to reversing the planet’s overdraft, scientists calculate, would be to make the most of wave energy to meet the world’s electricity needs.

Santiago de Chile.- As the first country in Latin America to overdraw its natural resources, Chile is depleting its annual ecological capacity. The situation derives from the indiscriminate use of resources by people and companies that, added to the accumulated and constantly increasing environmental debt, hinders a promising future for future generations.

A combination of factors have led to the rise in the price of gas, oil, gasoline and coal, causing a global energy crisis given the scarcity of fossil fuels and the need for renewable alternatives. Along these lines, according to the scientists, one solution would be to make the most of wave energy to meet the world’s electricity needs.

Waves have the highest energy density from a renewable source compared to wind, solar, biomass and geothermal. This translates into enormous potential to contribute to the resilience of the world’s energy mix. Countries such as Australia, China, Denmark, Italy, Korea, Portugal, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States are currently developing wave energy. According to the International Energy Agency, for the world to reach carbon neutrality by 2050, ocean energy generation must grow by an average of 33% per year between 2022 and 2030.

However, technologies to harness wave energy are still under development, because the plants are often very expensive to build and operate. Efforts at the country level must be focused today on reversing the ecological situation, and to do so, state support is necessary to promote the development of marine technologies, which are those with the greatest potential to face the crisis.
