Oregon Wave Energy Trust (OWET), a nonprofit public-private partnership dedicated to promoting the responsible development of ocean energy in Oregon, has released the results of a survey conducted by DHM Research that assessed Oregon coastal residents’ perceptions of ocean wave energy. The study showed strong support of ocean energy, with 78 percent of those surveyed in favor of its development.

Nine out of ten of the survey participants cited wave energy being a new source of renewable energy as the top reason for their support. Energy independence and keeping energy dollars local were also cited as strong positive factors at 86 percent and 81 percent respectively.
