Every day, scientists are working to find new sources of renewable energy. The sun and the wind are now kind of conventional resources. Now, scientists have started to study the moving waves of the oceans and the seas around the globe, and they realised that this could be a tremendous source of renewable and green energy.
This is the process of using the moving waves and the ebb and flow of water in oceans and seas to produce energy. The moving waves in the oceans hold a very high kinetic energy that can produce a massive amount of energy.
Research and development are still going on to produce the optimum method for converting this kinetic energy into electrical energy. Still, the high cost is a remarkable barrier, but eventually ocean energy will be a very reliable source like solar energy.
