Wave energy

Wave power is the transport of energy by ocean surface waves, and the capture of that energy to do useful work ? for example, electricity generation, water desalination, or the pumping of water (into reservoirs). A machine able to exploit wave power is generally known as a wave energy converter (WEC).

    Technology:

    As the quest for clean renewable energy intensifies the proposition of extracting energy from ocean waves sounds increasingly more attractive. The wave energy resource is recognized to contain the highest energy density among renewables and is virtually inexhaustible. Moreover unlike wind the wave climate is more predictable and is generally less intermittent. The primary waves of interest are those generated by the blowing of the winds which in turn are a product of differential heating of the earth. Therefore the wave energy may be considered as a concentrated form of solar energy.
