State, trends, attractiveness and perspectives of developing techniques within the relevant areas of application

The problems of wave energy conversion to electricity and hydrogen production, storage and use were surveyed and considered as concerned to the developing techniques. Wide encompassed reviews on wave power and hydrogen engineering current state and trends predict the much promising outlook for the developing techniques.

The main conclusions resulting from the consideration are as follows:
- The exploitation of ocean wave energy is prospective for massive power generation in the near future; some wave energy conversion technologies could meet the goal of electricity production at commercial scale by or before 2010;

- In the long term, hydrogen will be, along with electricity, one of the most important energy carriers and widely applicable;

- The hydrogen seawater electrolysis production and FWEPS are seemed to be intersupplemental technologies for supporting decentralised energy supply systems;

- Components of the power system under development are the promising candidates for the future power production-consumption market since for many regions the use of sea-wave energy is preferable and profitable for electricity generation, while hydrogen production by seawater electrolysis is superior to other means.
