Where is your contribution??--L.Doolaard (talk) 11:34, 2 October 2012 (CEST) 1. How does wave power work? The rolling motion of the waves is resisted by hydraulics which pump oil through a hydrolic motor. This motor is what converts the wave motion to electricity by powering electrical generators. I think you have to extend this; with this I still do not understand how it works. Maybe you can add a picture.--L.Doolaard (talk) 18:22, 4 October 2012 (CEST) 2. Can it be used in Spain, or Holland, why? Yes, it can be used in either country because both places have a part surrounded or around sea. Anywhere that has a shoreline, beaches...Could use wave power. 3. Is it expensive? No, wave power, unlike some energy, does no use fuel, so there is no need to waste money. Also, waves are natural, so they come and go, there is no controling them, so there is no need to pay money for them. But first you have to built it. Do you have an idea about the costst?--L.Doolaard (talk) 18:22, 4 October 2012 (CEST) 4. Is it renewable? Yes it is, becuase seeing as waves are always going to be there...You may need to wait sometimes, but eventually waves will come. 5. Advantages and disadvantages? Advantages of Wave Power

Capable of high efficiency (60-80%) in ideal conditions. Renewable energy source obtained by wind via the Sun’s heating of our atmosphere. Minimal environmental impact when properly placed. Low operation and maintenance costs after construction. Low upfront construction costs. No emissions during operation. Disadvantages of Wave Power

Improperly placed wave power plants can damage the marine ecosystem. Efficiency drops significantly in rough weather due to safety mechanisms. Limited locations where waves are strong enough to produce electricity without damaging equipment. Power only produced near oceans making transmission to inland customers difficult. Winds (and thus waves) can be unpredictable and far from reliable. Can’t produce electricity at all times. I think you've copy pasted this. Rewrtie it in your own words (as you've did with the other questions)--L.Doolaard (talk) 18:22, 4 October 2012 (CEST)
