I believe we should be very careful before moving forward with wave energy. As I understand it, the generation needs to occur close to the shore where the vast majority of marine life exists. This could potentially be very disruptive to this ecosystem. This shoreline ecosystem is already in trouble due to many human initiated factors. Even further out in the ocean could prove destructive.
Just because this is a renewable resource does not make it green. The renewable resource of hydroelectric dams have proven to be very destructive to our river ecosystem. Much research should be implemented prior to any actual project approval.
