- Debate: Wave power - con argument.
"Pros and cons of ocean wave energy". Energy Consumer's Edge - "Wave energy is intermittent and variable. Even in the most active wave areas, there are many days with little wave activity. On days that have good wave activity, wave levels can vary. As explained on the Pros and Cons of Wind Power page, resolving intermittency problems to attain reliable energy output can double and even triple the cost of power."
