Using the power from ocean waves, air is entrained by the Bernoulli principle and placed under compression. This compressed air is used to drive prime movers and to generate electricity. The generated electricity can be employed to desalt and separate sea water electrolytically into oxygen and hydrogen and the gases used to produce power and other useful products. The hydrogen which is highly fluid and of low weight can be transported inexpensively to a distance from the sea and then reconverted to water, combining it with atmospheric oxygen, producing substantial energy as well as water.
