"Throughout the world's oceans, the tides are always in motion. In Ocean Energy, learn how scientists harness this motion to generate clean electricity, discover where ocean energy is being used today, and explore what the future of this technology may hold. Easy-to-read text, vivid images, and helpful back matter give readers a clear look at this subject."--Publisher's description.
Found in rushing rivers and the churning waters of the ocean, hydro and wave energy technologies turn the movement of water into useful electricity. The Science of Hydro and Wave Energy examines the fields of hydroelectric and ocean energy technologies, including the underlying scientific concepts, their potential for replacing fossil fuels, examples of how they are used today, and prospective future developments.
Wave power is a green energy technology that harnesses a renewable resource. Learn about how this energy technology developed, the risks and rewards of wave power, and whether or not we can ride the waves to solve the energy challenges of the future.
