Hello Eric, that is a great idea and yes that can be a possible application of this device! That's also a good idea! I would be happy if you can give us a hint where we could find affordable linear generators with a good efficiency? marcus.lehmann@berkeley.edu

Hello Robert, Thank you for your hints and yes the mag meter would allow us to measure flow noninvasive in real-time. That would help us to answer the question of what is the optimum distance between our power take off units for the spectrum of one specific site in the ocean. I am looking forward to continue the conversation about the diaphragm pump and sent you an email! Best, Marcus

Dear Derek, Thank you for your comment and helping us to preserve nature and the future of our planet! In every design step, we are taking the environmental impact into account and working on an official assessment of a third party. Please keep in mind that wave and tidal energy are a different resource form of renewable energy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wave_power http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tidal_power http://www.rnp.org/node/wave-tidal-energy-technology http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_the_difference_between_tidal_and_wave_power http://www.towards-sustainability.co.uk/issues/energy/wave.html

Hello Jan, Thank you for your contribution and welcome on board! Yes, in the beginning accredited test locations are most interesting, like in Oregon or UC: http://www.nbcnews.com/id/9087031/ns/us_news-environment/t/oregon-coast-could-be-wave-energy-hub/ http://oregonwave.org/news/hayle-wave-hub-first-device-plugged/ They will also ensure the environmental impact is compatible and we are also working on a thorough assessment of the environmental impact. We will keep you update!
