Research and development of oceanic energy utilization technology

Study period:1989 - 2003
Research overview:
Based on the recognition on the global environmental problem, general attention has been again paid to utilization of clean and unlimited natural energy. Particularly in the isolated islands, remote areas, and the developing countries, the utilization of the natural energy is highly expected as a convenient and compact energy source. One of such natural enrgy sources is the sea wave energy for the effective use in the coastal areas. This study develops an offshore floating-body wave-power utilizing apparatus called "Mighty Whole", that efficiently absorbs wave energy for its utilization in the coastal areas, and makes backside sea of the apparatus calm for fish-raising in that sea area.
