Global wave and tidal stream energy production has risen tenfold over the last decade, according to a report by Ocean Energy Systems (OES).

The OES annual report found cumulative energy produced from wave and tidal stream sources rose to 45 gigawatt-hours in 2019 from less than 5GWh in 2009.

 

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, it added.

 

OES is a 25-member intergovernmental collaboration between countries operating under a framework established by the International Energy Agency.
