    The UK is planning the world’s biggest wave and wind power generators which will be completed by 2020 and will provide 29 Gigawatts of energy.

    The US also just recently is experimenting with implementing wave power near the coasts of Oregon, with an investment of $60 million, which will provide power for 400 homes by 2012.
