Wave and Tidal Energy

Wave energy is the extraction of energy from ocean waves which are generated by wind passing over stretches of water, while tidal energy is the result of the interaction of the gravitational pull of the moon and also the sun to an extent on the oceans.

Wave and tidal energy has the potential to meet up to 20% of the United Kingdom’s current electricity demand with up to 50 gigawatts (GW) installed capacity.
