The capture of energy of wind waves to do useful work

Tidal energy

The form of hydropower that converts energy obtained from tides into useful power

Solar energy

Radiant light and heat from the sun that is harnessed using solar panels

Wind energy

Wind farms constructed in the ocean to harvest energy and generate electricity
