Cool Idea: Portugal's Wave Farm

A lot of countries are figuring out ways to green their power production through solar, biofuel, and wind power. In fact, Sweden has pledged that they will be oil-free by 2020!


I love that Portugal has taken another renewable energy route by creating the world's first commercial wave factory, which I read about over at Inhabitat. Opening off the coast of northern Portugal at Agucadoura, the expected total output of the wave plant should be enough to power around 2,000 homes. The wave farm is expected to be operational within the end of the year.
