The Pacific Community has released a report that considers the wave resource and the potential cost of wave energy development across the Pacific region.    To read a press release, click here.

The most viable islands for beneficial use of wave energy are identified in the report as those located south of latitude 20ºS, due to their exposure to wave energy from the Southern Ocean.  The Cost analysis of wave energy in the Pacific is available on the following website: http://wacop.gsd.spc.int/WACOP-COE_Wave_Pacific-FINAL.pdf
