Wave power plant in Portugal
Portugal has been researching wave power plants as a source of renewable energy since the 80s. But until recently, no module has been robust or profitable enough to develop. Now a giant yellow buoy bobs off the coast of the country, which can generate up to 300 kilowatts of energy from wind and waves, no matter the weather conditions.
