This year in Norway, we have seen the deployment of two prototypes. Deep River tested a 250 kW pilot in May, and the Tide Tec scaled prototype was deployed in Svelvik outside Drammen, in the southeast.

Wave power was mentioned in the white paper on energy policy (Meld. St. 25 2015-2016) published by the Government this year. In that short mention, the Government concedes that there is interest in testing wave power technology on the Norwegian coast.
