I've heard about this as a concept, years ago.

Yahoo Article

Anyone know if a US company that's working in this area?

Interesting to me is how the DOE is cutting ocean wave funding because they want nuclear, coal, and biofuel power only. (Though I'm sure a spokesman from the DOE would not so harshly summarize their position.)

It's interesting only because as of 2005
The Pelamis system was selected as the best and only system currently recommended for deployment in an American project by the internationally known Electrical Power Research Institute. This project benefits from a special tariff established by the Portuguese government to support wave energy.­ looks like it has been keeping tabs on wave energy for years.
