Zhuhai will be the home to a newly developed power plant that will employ the renewable energy of ocean waves, China Daily reports. 

The “renewable energy trial park” will be one of three developed by 2016. The other two locations will be in Zhoushan, Zhejiang and Weihai, Shandong.

The Zhuhai park will harness the power of waves, and when complete, will be the location of a 300-kilowatt wave farm and test site. The Zhoushan site will harness tidal power, while the Weihai location will utilize both types of energy.

Deputy director of the science and technology department of the State Oceanic Administration Kang Jian said the three renewable energy parks will help speed up the commercial expansion of the wave and tidal power industry.

Guangdong Province has long been a place to develop new types of energy in China. Guangdong has three nuclear power plants in operation at Daya Bay, Lingao and Yangjiang; combining those in operation and under construction, the province has more nuclear reactors than anywhere else in China.
