The seas and oceans are teeming with many different forms of energy, practically all of which are renewable. The sun is the main source, generating mechanical energySum of the potential energy and kinetic energy of an object or system... from the major ocean currents and waves, chemical energy through marine organisms and thermal energy by heating the surface water. But the moon also plays a role by influencing the tides with its gravitational pull. And so too does the Coriolis force, which is generated by the Earth's rotation and affects the movement of ocean currents.
As the world transitions into a low-carbon future, the question is how to recover some of these enormous energy reserves to help reduce fossil fuelFuel is any solid, liquid or gaseous substance or material that can be combined with an oxidant... consumption.
