Oceans cover 70 percent of the earth’s surface and represent an enormous amount of energy in the form of wave, tidal, marine current, and temperature differences between surface and deep waters. Though ocean energy is still in a developmental stage, researchers are seeking ways to capture that energy and convert it to electricity. This course presents an overview of ocean energy technology as a source of renewable energy. It investigates ocean energy resources and new technologies under development to capture that energy.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
