Science is always looking for new ways to create sustainable energy from things we have in abundance, like sun and wind. But what about waves? Scientists from around the world having been working for years on developing technologies to effectively harness the power of ocean waves. The U.S. just brought online its first wave-produced electricity using tall buoys placed off the island of Oahu, in Hawaii, near Kaneohe Bay. While these buoys can generate enough electricity to power approximately 18 homes, a team in Oregon is currently working on a system that could power hundreds! Cowabunga dudes!
