for a Motorwave of 300m in length (1500 M2) we can generate:P = 70 H*4 0.2= 224 KW
to match the same power a wind turbine has to be of 100 meters in diameter .(10 000 M2)
typical wind turbine has off 50 m cost approximatively: 700.000 US$
typical wind turbine has off 100 m cost approximatively: 2 500.000 US$
Motorwave has cost : 200.000 US$
the simple explanation is: the air (wind) density is near sea approx 1.2 : 1.2 kg /M3
: the water (wave) density approx 1100 : 1100 kg /M3
the energy of object can be quantify as:
E = MV or E = 1/2 M V*2 or E = M g H where M is the mass and V is the speed and H is the height.
It is therefore easy to understand that, the heavier M is, the higher E will be. Just for easy understanding (because it is not exactly correct ) the same wind turbine with a same fluid speed will be 1000 times more powerful in water than on land .
