Wave Energy Project in Brazil for Eco Wave Power
According to a study, Brazil has an estimated wave energy potential of 91.8 GW, considering the 7,491 km of the Brazilian coast. The study points out that the conversion of just one fifth of this potential would be enough to supply around 35% of the country's electricity demand. Another study, from, calculates that only the Northeast region, where Port of Pecém is located, would have an estimated ocean energy potential of 22 GW.
