Interesting. I’d expect costs be considerably higher then, having to deal with pounding waves & corrosion - not trivial when dealing with hundreds of thousands of them.

Begs the question of wave energy collectors: hinged barges using wave-induced flexing to pump hydraulics thru generators. Much simpler than trying to stand a wind turbine.

I think they are thinking of putting wave barrages out to sea as well.
