Discussion of Wave Energy Industry Concerns

TESTING

The Vancouver Wave Energy Testing Station for 3rd parties to verify  the power produced from

various wave sizes

CONVERSION FACTOR

Convert Hs to Average Wave Height

Hs = Significant Wave Height:   a statistical value used for marine safety and  forecasting

W. H.(avg) is used for wave energy applications

INDUSTRY CONCERNS
