Q: There is technology that means we can use waves to generate energy, why don’t we use it?
A: This is called tidal power and works well. The tide changes every 6 hrs – coming in and then going out. The UK uses this technology. Hydro power is clean so we are using that, but tidal power is worth looking at.
