"B.C. Hydro is considering two projects to generate electricity by harnessing the power of the sea. Companies from Australia, England, Scotland and Washington state have been shortlisted for two demonstration wave-energy plants to be run in joint ventures with Hydro...If successful, the projects would be the first ocean-powered generators in Canada. Similar technology is being tried in Washington state and small wave plants are already in use in Europe."
