Energy from the sea
For some time, humanity has realized that the only viable path for energy purposes is that of renewable resources.
We have seen photovoltaic and wind power plants sprouting like mushrooms, and more and more attention is being paid to this. But there is a good part of scientists who are working on more ambitious projects, namely extracting energy from the sea.

The forces at work in the oceans and seas of the world are portentous, and the mere thought of being able to harness them until recently was mere illusion, but with the advances made by technology, these things are now possible. The idea of exploiting marine power has always been in the mind of man but so far everything has remained at the project level. Sea currents flow within the seas like huge rivers, and how they behave. The tides move huge amounts of water from one side of the Earth to the other, and the waves crash heavily on our shores. From a theoretical point of view, there is nothing on Earth comparable in terms of energy power.
Energy from the sea can be extrapolated in several ways:
The projects and prototypes presented so far for these fields range from the most daring to the simplest. In my opinion, the most interesting are the less invasive and more effective ones, that is those projects that recover energy through the exploitation of waves and currents.
Let's see some of them together:
Fortunately, research continues, and the possibility of having "clean" energy is becoming more and more a reality. This involves several things, including shirking the yoke of economic policies dictated by states that own oil or coal, and eliminating the exploitation of these resources that are harmful to our environment.
