Abstract

Wave energy development continues to advance in order to capture the immense ocean energy available globally. A large number of wave energy conversion concepts have been developed and researched to date but we are still not able to see a convergence of technologies. This provides the requirement and additional opportunity for further research. This paper provides a review and discusses the development of the OWC concept of wave energy converters in general and the evolved variation of the M-OWC more specifically. The review outlines the increased potential of the M-OWC concept and its current state through its advancement in recent years. Although still under development the M-OWCs have the potential to provide promising results, through the various innovative concepts under consideration, and support the progression and further development of wave energy as another serious contender in the renewables energy mix.
