Recent Trends in Wave and Tidal Current Energy: A Review

Rashmi Singh



In recent decades, the globally demand for renewable energy has continued to enhance, even with contrary economic conditions such as trade disputes, world economic recessions and falls in gas and oil prices. The potential of producing electric power from marine renewable energy is massive. Marine waves are being very familiar as a renewable resource to be exploited for the sustainable generation of electrical power. The expectable resource features style ocean waves and tides chiefly attractive for power generation and beneficial when comparing to other sources of renewable energies. The proposed review will specifically highlight the main wave energy conversion projects around the world. The wave and tidal energy is having more and more support and interest as an auspicious renewable resource to replace part of the energy supply, although it is still immature compared to other renewable technologies. This work presents a complete analysis of the wave energy technology, starting with the characterization of this global resource in which the most suitable places to be exploited are displayed. The given paper discusses a complete review of wave and tidal energy technologies.
