HC Deb 23 June 1980 vol 987 cc8-9W
22. Mr. Hooley

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what is the current estimate of the cost of generating electricity by wave power.

Mr. John Moore

Wave energy technology is not yet sufficiently developed to permit reliable cost estimates to be made. Rough estimates, based on present outline designs indicate costs in the region of 5–15p/Kw hr.
