Wave energy as a means of generating electricity has been the focus of study in the UK for over thirty years, albeit in a low key manner and with little public support. Interest is now growing. This paper reviews the developments during this time period to put the work into context and briefly describes the different types of device that have been studied. It also discusses wave energy generation in a world-wide context.
