Ocean energy, people are looking to the oceans for renewable energy.
Ideal resource, evolving with new technology Waves averages about 3 million watts
Areas with no power can have energy
Ocean life is protected with new technology

Tidal power, called tidal energy.
Hydropower converts the energy obtained from tides into useful forms of power.
Tidal power has potential for future electricity generations. Tides are more predictable than wind energy and solar power.

Ninety percent of today's worldwide ocean energy production is represented by a single site: the La Rance Tidal Power Plant that was built in 1966.

Oceans cover 70% of Earth making them the world's largest solar collectors. The sun heats the surface water. This temperature
