In Sign of Turkey-Israel Thaw, a Joint Project is inked to build the World’s Largest Wave Power Plant on Black Sea

Where talk is cheap and announcements ear-catching these two countries need the positive distraction. what better way than to “announce”

Wave power is at the moment too expensive to be more than a demonstration project, at 60 cents per kilowatt hour to as much as a dollar. Its advantages, however, are that it is zero-carbon and continuous. Solar power does not work at night, and windmills don’t make power when the wind dies down. Waves constantly keep coming, in contrast. Places such as California have been filling in the gaps created by the intermittency of solar and wind by firing up fossil gas plants, which is both expensive and environmentally destructive.
