Fossil Energy and Fossil Fuel Information

Surface Wave Energy is the energy that is generated by capturing the energy of moving water of surface waves. There are two ways of generating electricity through surface waves:

a) With the help of turbines: Underwater blades are used to spin the waves and transmit their energy to the electricty generator.

b) With the help of tidal barrages: Tidal barrages are dams that are built wherein, when the tide comes in and the sea level rises, water passes through the dam and becomes trapped in a basin. Similarly, when the tide goes out, gates within the dam release the water. This allows it to flow through turbines that spin and transfer energy to electric generators.
