The Development Of Wave Power: A Techno-Economic Study
Leishman, J. M.
A study of the development of wave power was undertaken by the National Engineering Laboratory for the Department of Energy and was presented in a two-part report (Summary and Full Report) dated February 1975. Because of the interest generated in the development of wave power it was decided to make the NEL contribution generally available in this report which presents in one document the bulk of the material in the two-part report. The text has not been revised to take account of developments which have taken place since February 1975 and it should be emphasised that this report represents the status and NEL's thinking on wave power at that time. Some footnotes have been added to indicate where new information is in conflict with that in the report. No attempt has been made to take account of all new information in this way.
