Wave Power in Ireland

by: Morganne Williams

In Ireland a new source of power is coming about. Have you ever thought of the ocean as anything but a place to swim or a home for sea creatures? Well, someone did!
In Ireland they are beginning to create energy from waves. According to CNET Ireland hopes to produe 75 megawatts of energy in 2012 and 500 megawatts in 2020. That is enough energy to power 70% of Ireland! The ocean can be used for many things and now it can be used for one more!
