Ocean floating solar/wave domes connected by a web-like array could be used to harness both sun and wave power.
The concept involves connecting dome shaped solar cells in an orderly network. The photovoltaic covered domes would harness solar power while they also capture wave energy as they bob on the water. Solar energy reflected back to the photovoltaics from the water would increase the solar capture by as much as 20 percent.
