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