    Electricity Learn More about Wave and Tidal Energy
    What did you learn about wave and tidal energy? How do they compare to other energy sources?

    Operating in harsh marine environments is hard, tidal  energy is better established than wave,  more wave-energy technologies are being tested more today, and it accounts for a good fraction of all the energy generated globally.
