Concept and scheme of the environment friendly power supply system based on the use of wave and aqueous resources of the World Ocean

The analysis of current situation and trend motivation in power engineering distinctly show that, the artificial world energy production became already comparable with the capacities of natural energy fluxes in the Earth’s outskirts. This leads to the biosphere irreversible degradation. Before the environmental threat the most intelligent solution of problem of power production growth under protection of wilderness areas should be based on the use of renewable energy resources.

The especially attractive system among the first to meet these requirements is one based on the use of wave and aqueous resources of the World Ocean. The system comprises of a wave energy converter and installation for hydrogen production by means of seawater electrolysis.

Sea waves is a very promising energy carrier since they manifest the highest specific power among renewable sources.

In turn, seawater electrolysis is a very attractive hydrogen producing procedure, since seawater is the most widespread, cleanest and cheapest working medium; its resources are practically unlimited.

The system supplemented with accumulator and energy consumer presents an ecologically friendly power-industrial complex as if built into the environment, since the energy taken off and seawater after the working cycle are recycled so introducing no additional heat or whichever pollution.
