I think the wave power figures works out to about 5,000 horse power per mile of tital coast line. About right I think. It is vital to remember that the energy your taking out of the waves is the amount the wave or tide falls. If your tide is 10 feet then you get the energy of water falling 10 feet. So to get all that power your talking about your talking about a lot of water. This means the entire cost line will be utilized. For six hours you will be filling a really big pond and the next six hours you'll be emptying it. When the author says small foot print I think he is talking about the small foot print a 10 foot wall makes on the ground maybe about 6 feet wide(assuming a tide of 8 feet) stretching all along the coast line. Simple and non damaging to the enviorment?? Maybe so but say goodbye to the beach as we know it.

do you know of anybody doing wave power generator research & development in the pacific northwest (Washington state or British Columbia)?
I'm working on wave power in Brisbane Australia & plan to spend at least a spring & summer in that most beautiful part of the world helping to pioneer some great wave technology
