Harvest Ocean Wave Energy?
We Can Do It!
Challenges for Coastal Communities
1. Expensive diesel power
In the US, there are two to three hundred remote islands and coastal communities. They are not covered by regional-scale grid, but have isolated micro-grids with capacities ranging from 200 to 5000 kilowatts. These micro-grids depend on diesel power at a cost that is at least $ 50c per kilowatt-hour, which is about four times the national average.
2. Logistical challenge of diesel transportation
In the remote coastal areas, the Department of Defense also has numerous military bases that operate in diesel power. Their primary pain is the logistical challenge. During armed conflicts, transporting diesel fuel not only costs high but also may risk human life.
3. Damage of power infrastructure caused by coastal disasters
In 2017, the Hurricane Maria completely destroyed Puerto Rico’s power grid. Part of the island still suffered in dark nine months after the storm.
4. Property loss caused by Coast erosion
In Texas, 61 % of the shoreline is critically eroded. Nationwide, each year $ 500 million dollars of property loss are caused by coastal erosion.
