Ocean Energy

The ocean can produce three types of energy: thermal energy from the sun's heat, mechanical energy from the tides and waves, and tidal energy using the movement of tidal waves to create energy.

Sources of Energy


Oceanic energy is a renewable energy source. It is very environmentally sound. Water is extremely abundant and available in almost every place you could imagine. Plus, there's a variety of ways to capture oceanic energy


Although oceanic energy is very efficient, only power plants located close to the water will reap the benefits. There is also a negative effect on marine life and commercial vessels.
