A Presentation & Discussion By Rod Kirk

pixabay wave 2520370 1920 sm2If you have ever tried body surfing I am sure you have become very familiar with the forces in the waves that have knocked you around. Think about the miles and miles of coastline that exists. What if we could somehow harness some of that energy in those waves. In today's meeting we will take a look at wave basics, calculating how much energy is in a wave, and just how we can harness that energy. We will take a look at Wave Energy Conversion (WEC) and how it is done today and what is on the horizon.  We will have some discussion as well as watch a video.
 
Please join us for this interesting session!
