This paper analyzes wave climate and energy market data to produce a regional picture of coastal U.S. wave energy market prices and wave power. Energy production capacity and market cost per kWh trends are established to show prospective energy demand and earning capability for a wave power park in each coastal region. The state data is partitioned amongst the coastal regions: north or south Pacific coast, north or south Atlantic coast, and Gulf coast. Projected earnings data per coastal region is then coupled with the seasonal wave power available in those regions, with the introduction of ‘prospective earnings per month per meter of wavefront’. The paper concludes with an economic comparison of power prices, usable wave power between coastal regions, and forecasted renewables demand.
