Renewable Energy Resources: Wave, Tidal, and Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion

The other type of renewable energy resources that come from ocean are wave energy, tidal energy, and ocean thermal energy conversion.

Wave Energy

Wave energy is a type energy obtained directly from surface wave or surface wave under pressure. The waves are generated from winds blowing from the surface of sea or ocean. Wind itself is a function of temperature and pressure differences across the globe caused by distribution of solar energy.

Wave energy carries kinetic energy and gravitational potential energy. The energy is a function of height and period of waves. Wave Energy Converter (WEC) is used to convert wave energy into electricity. Read More
