RENEWABLE ENERGY-WAVE
HOW DOES IT CREATE POWER
BEST LOCATION AND INFO?
EXAMPLES OF THIS ENERGY
ADVANTAGES/DISADVANTAGES
• Wave power is the transportation of energy using the surface of the ocean waves and also capturing that energy to do useful things. E.g. electricity generation, water desalination, or the pumping of water (into reservoirs). Machinery which is able to exploit wave power is generally known as a wave energy converter (WEC).
• Electricity generation, water desalination, or the pumping of water (into reservoirs).
• Reservoir is a natural or artificial place where water is collected and stored for use, especially water for supplying a community, irrigating land, furnishing power, etc.
• Water desalination refers to any of several processes that remove some amount of salt and other minerals from saline water.

Advantages

• Renewable
• Environment Friendly
• Easily Predictable : The biggest advantages of wave power as against most of the other alternative energy sources is that it is easily predictable and can be used to calculate the amount that it can produce. The wave energy is consistent and proves much better than other sources which are dependent on wind or sun exposure.
• Less Dependency on Foreign Oil Companies for fossil fuels
• No Damage to Land

Disadvantages
• Only Suitable to Certain Locations
• Effects marine life
• Wavelength
• Weak Performance in Rough Weather
• Noise and Visual pollution

Wave power has yet to be properly used in Britain, mainly because other energy sources have so far proven cheaper and easier to develop. But, as easy to reach oil and gas start to run out, global energy demand rises and commitment to limit climate change strengthens, the case for wave is becoming stronger.

Britain has over 11,000 miles of coastline and some of the highest tidal ranges in the world. With technology developing fast, it is clear that wave power can make a significant contribution to energy generation in the future.


Ocean beds are the best location for Wave power
