Ways to Convert Wave Energy to Electricity ( Solar Thermal Magazine)
How much do you know about making energy from the waves? Making is the wrong term as the first law of thermodynamics states that energy cannot be created or destroyed, so convert is a better word. The energy in waves comes either from the wind which originates with the sun or from the tides, for which we owe the gravitational pull of the moon.
In this video you will learn the 3 ways to convert wave energy into usable clean electricity. There is enough energy in the worlds oceans in the form of waves to power our economies forever so it is imperative that we learn how to do it efficiently,cheaply and safely ( not in that order).
To power the world we will have think a lot bigger than this rubber duck presentation but you learn how to need to function.
When the rubber duck is moving, you are producing electricity. What can we say, he is British….
Enjoy the video.
