Waves hold a large amount of unused energy, from which we can use to generate power to at least a portion of the world's everyday electricity. It can contribute to over ten percent to the world’s electricity. Waves are always present the ocean waters so we can say that the wave energy is renewable.
But still we are not using the wave energy effectively for power generations it is only used in rare parts of the world. The entire planet can be powered with 0.2 percent of the waves in the ocean.The tough part is coming up with ways to turn this power into usable energy.
- Wave energy can be harnessed out at sea or by the shoreline.
