These articles are always interesting, but missing a small detail.
What is the percentage of production systems? If we want to install them to produce renewable energy, to know the yield to amortize the cost is necessary.
In Italy, the Mediterranean Sea, around June, will be installed a system of 2 kW, (for waves from a meter), it will produce 2.1 kW, the 105%.
Larger systems for oceans and areas with waves up to two meters, with an annual production average, minimum of 60%.
These data are useful to investors, not only the power plant, but also the ability / percentage of energy generated.

does anyone know about thorium as a potential source of nuclear energy instead of uranium? safer?

Thorium is attracting increasing interest - Google recently hosted an expert talk on the substance and how the US used to lead in this area of research. The US ran an experimental thorium reactor for over a decade with no adverse issues.

I confess I am a fan - at least of revisiting the subject with a view to some serious research - just dont let the NRC near it, they are irrationally hostile/dismissive. This needs to be allocated to the NREL. I suspect this will happen when China and India start ti invest in thorium (as I believe they are both considering). I just wish the US wasn't giving away its historic lead on this research & development.)
