12 – She is Walking, Spent

She is walking, spent

remembers: the recoverable wave energy resource here is 160 terawatt hours per year

160 terawatt hours per year = energy resource from waves

enormous potential

consider: just 1 terawatt hour per year of energy could supply 93,850 homes with power


if recoverable

can it be recovered?

While an abundance of wave energy is available, it cannot
be fully harnessed everywhere for a variety of reasons…

One might need a Dragon to recover.

A large-scale effort

that reacts to pressure and stress

to generate power

the necessary power for 93,850 homes

or one

one person walking

walking by the waves one might harness

for energy resources


if recoverable

but is she?
