What size wave is needed to produce ocean wave energy?

Ocean wave energy is a source of renewable energy using the waves of the ocean to generate electricity. Any size wave can produce wave energy, but it is the tall waves with lower frequencies that p... Read More »

Are wave energy and wave power the same thing?

Although the terms are often used interchangeably, wave energy and wave power are not necessarily the same. Waves contain energy produced by wind blowing over the surface of the ocean, but it is on... Read More »
