Day by day we look for alterntives to the many things we do. We tend to worry about the effects we have on the enviorment and more. This is why it is important to find different ways of producing electricity without producing a huge amount of pollution.Since 1799 man has tried to use the potential power of wave energy. only recently in the last few decades has man been able rto develope devices which could harness the power oif the ocean. Energy is produced within the ocean every day. It’s just a matter of putting it to work. To produce the energy devieves are placed in the ocean(these are called converter devices) these are used to gather the oceans energy. These devices can be used in the deeper part of the ocean or in the waves on shorelines. When the wave is deeper the more energy it will create. Once scietists have perfected hte use of wave energy the electrticity it produces will have a huge effect over the entire world.
