This mass of kinetic energy can be captured quite effectively, and the UK is a good location for such an idea. Large storm waves which occur in the North Sea would be ideal for producing electricity. Waves which are around 400m long can occur, and experts believe 700 kilowatts of electricity per metre could be captured. It's not just the North Sea either; suitable waters for wave power projects surround our island.
There are several ways of capturing the energy from waves, and some of them, such as building dams or pipes for the water to go up, can be quite expensive, and also could be disruptive to other industry, such as fishing.
However, if a suitable site could be found, cheaper and environmentally friendly energy could be created.
