2 Answers

Answer :

Advantages of wave energy are :

  • Wave energy is free it comes from waves of oceans.
  • Wave energy is renewable.
  • Wave energy does not generate pollution,
  • The waves generated in the ocean is almost continuous so no need for power storage.
  • For a generation of wave energy no need for land.
These are some advantages of wave energy.

Disadvantages of wave energy are :
  • The distance between generation and load center is more.
  • Machines may cause harm to fishes.
  • Stong waves may destroy the device.
  • Initial cost for installing machines may be costlier.
These are some disadvantages of wave energy.
