COST EFFECTIVENESS OF WAVE POWER EXTRACTION AT EROSIVE COASTS

Hideo Kondo

Abstract


Cost of wave power extraction is investigated for the coasts where erosion has been continuing without suitable countermeasures. By a wave power extraction, a shoreline accretion is expected due to the mean sea level drop. Cost effectiveness is discussed with the concept of total cost instead of the generation cost only.
