Riding the Wave of Marine Energy Generation

Harnessing the energy of wave and tidal currents to generate electricity is arguably a less risky and more predictable endeavor than wind and solar power, and advanced technology to make marine energy a widespread reality is making strong gains, while new tools for predicting wave power could double marine energy generation. 

Marine energy includes the energy available in wave surfaces and tidal power as well as kinetic energy from large bodies of moving water. This energy is harnessed through the placement of turbines on the ocean floor or seabed to generate electricity.

The massive amount of energy in oceans close to densely populated areas means that marine energy has the potential to become one of the most important sources of renewable energy in the world.

New research also shows that marine energy stands to become a much more viable source of power thanks to a new system that can accurately predict the power of the next wave in order to make the most of the extraction process.

According to a Pike Research report from late June, “marine and hydrokinetic power systems offer one of the most promising areas for renewable energy development. Marine and hydrokinetic resources -- including ocean waves, tidal streams, river flows, ocean currents, and ocean thermal differences -- are abundant, the technology is improving rapidly, and countries that have strong marine resources, such as the United Kingdom, United States, Australia, South Korea,…
