Wave energy is a form of renewable energy that can be harnessed from the motion of the waves. Depending on the lunar cycles, tides, winds, and weather, waves can vary in size and strength. As waves roll through the ocean, they create kinetic energy or movement. This movement can be used to power turbines, which, in turn, create energy that can be converted into electricity and power.
- Similar to solar, wind, and geothermal energy, wave energy is a renewable source. As long as the Earth continues to track around the sun and the moon around the Earth, waves will continue to be a viable source of kinetic energy.
- Wave energy also produces fewer carbon emissions than energy from traditional fossil fuels, such as coal or oil, making it a more eco-friendly option.
