Wave power has a high potential to be captured and used for generating electricity in future as the technology develops further. There is a lot of energy stored in waves. 94% energy of the ocean stored in the wave, and the other 6% is tidal energy. Only small a part of the wave power is used for commercial electricity generation today. Reference: D. Halamay, T.K.A. Brekken, A. Simmons, and S. McArthur, “Reserve requirement impacts of large-scale integration of wind, solar, and ocean wave power generation,”...
