Waves of Power

Ocean-buoy generators promise to convert the movement of waves into energy.

Ocean-buoy generators, like the one illustrated here, promise to convert the movement of waves into energy. Voltage is induced when waves cause coils located inside the buoy to move relative to the magnetic field of the anchored shaft. This process generates electricity.
