  1. 09-05-04 World's First Offshore Electric Project Starts (MSNBC News)
      "The world’s first offshore project to generate power from waves, built in the Orkney Islands off northern Scotland, has started production and supplied electricity to the grid, the project’s developers have announced."

      "The prototype Pelamis machine, which uses wave motion to turn an electricity producing generator, can supply enough power to run 500 homes. A long cylinder, the machine sits on the water semi-submerged."

      "The initial operating costs are half those of wind power when it launched 20 years ago and are a quarter of those of solar photovoltaic technology, Carcas said."

      "The British government is keen to encourage wave power and recently announced $90 million in support for the wave and tidal power sector." 9-04
