Water can be used in many different ways.  This post is both a story about water, but also about some of the funds being spent to try and find additional alternative energy sources.  I work a little with solar power to move water for livestock watering and irrigation, but the use of waves to produce energy seems interesting.  The Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy has put out a call for proposals to find ways of using and capturing the energy in water waves to produce power.  To see how a few different groups are trying to find a way to harness the energy of water waves, how they are testing their thoughts and what progression is being made, click on the link for Marine and Hydrokinetic Technology Development and Testing.

On the link it tells about the grant, but also how different teams are designing, testing and modifying their designs to capture energy from water waves.
