Ocean energy still remains as unexplored massive source of renewable energy. Survivability of the structures is the major impediment in harnessing this type of energy. Amongst ocean energy conversion, wave energy is a viable option since the wave energy converters are not detrimental to aquatic life. Point absorber wave energy converters have better structural survivability compared to other wave energy converters due to their small size relative to the wavelength of the incident waves. A brief survey of the commercial deployment of the point absorber wave energy converters is presented in this paper. Point absorbers continue to be viable option for wave energy conversion.
