OWEB Ocean Wave Energy weB on World Two Air Ocean Dymaxion Map- one World Island. Each of 100 red dots locates 1% humanity concentration. Click on blue dots to view wave data. Some links require further selection for wave height, or animation, and others may be temporarily inactive. Generally, energetic waves exist when the value for height, expressed in feet, is equal to or greater than period expressed in seconds. Data input, to an Excel Power Output Calculator , helps determine single module scale. Basis is buoy diameter equals two thirds wave height. Data application may forecast OWEB electrical production for specific regions and condition OWEB operation, power, and transmission.
Several conventional energy deficient countries and islands have wave energy wealth. Over 23,000 islands dot the Pacific Ocean. Some of their landfall and numerous seamounts aptly support ocean water-based operations. In other arrangement, OWEB configurations can deter vessel traffic from MPA marine protected areas. For example, slender arrays can span outside of the very long Northwestern Hawaiian Islands MPA boundaries. OWEB edge and corner openings may coincide wide margins between cetacean travel ways and other indigenous activity. As important is planning where OWEB should not be deployed.
Eventual grid connection of remote powerhouse regions, toward the Arctic and consistently very great wave density in southern Roaring Forties, Furious Fifties, Screaming Sixties, and ice-free waters about Antarctica, provides ample energy to freshen water for producing hydrogen and oxygen gases near major source of rising sea level. From there, via OWEB, power is distributed through South America and Australia terminals of the World Game unified HVDC high voltage direct current grid. Other landfall may be near transmission lines of decommissioned thermal or seawater cooled nuclear facilities.
