Vice News has released an 8-minute video showcasing the abundant opportunities for harnessing the power of waves along the coasts of the United States. The video also points out just how complicated development of the technology to generate electricity from waves can be.

In introducing the video, Vice News says: “According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the waves along the U.S. coast could cover 64% of our nation’s energy needs. So why haven’t we harnessed them? Well, it’s annoyingly complicated; but this renewable technology is about to make waves in the new green economy.”
