SHARING IDEAS THAT DO GOOD

Beating Coastal Erosion & Harnessing Wave Energy

post-image
More than $226 billion of Australian assets are exposed to coastal erosion which is only getting worse with climate change. A collaboration of researchers, industry and the Mid-West Ports Authority are exploring the use of wave energy converters to absorb and harness the damaging waves that hammer Australia’s vulnerable coastlines during severe weather events.
They aim for better management of coastal erosion, generation of renewable energy for guilt-free power and recovery of costs, and perhaps even the support of stronger ecological values in the local area. https://www.swinburne.edu.au/news/2022/02/producing-electricity-while-protecting-vulnerable-coastlines/
