Abstract: An oceanic wave energy utilization system includes a floating energy collection device (1), an energy transfer device (2) and an energy conversion device (4). The floating energy collection device is connected to the energy conversion device via the energy transfer device. The floating energy collection device is made up of a hull-shaped float and a float limitation device. Vertical energy collection plates (101) are arranged at the underside of the float, while the energy transfer device is made up of a fixed seat and an energy transfer rod, said fixed seat being fixed at shore-side or at the seabed and movably connected to the energy transfer rod. The energy transfer rod is movably connected to the floating energy collection device and to the energy conversion device.
