With oil prices at historic highs, the race is on to develop alternative energy resources. Many countries and businesses are now looking towards the oceans as a highly promising energy source. But are these hopes realistic? What are the prospects for marine currents and ocean waves, the technologies which have received the most attention in the last decade, to become competitive on a large scale?
