Why don't all countries use wave power?

There are a number of reasons why no country actually uses much wave power at the moment. The technology is still not fully worked out. Experimental stations do generate power, but not in significant amounts.


How is energy harnessed from flowing water?

You can build a dam with turbines and use the water moving through the turbines to generate electricity.You can install wave machines in the ocean to turn the movement of the waves into electricity.You can build barrages in tidal bays to take advantage of the movement of the tides to generate electricity.You can install turbines on the bed of fast-moving rivers and streams to generate electricity.You can build a watermill beside a stream or river and use the power of the moving water to turn millstones to grind grain into flour.


What are some new ways to make energy?

Wind power, solar panels, hydroelectric, etc.


How much energy does wave power provide?

I'm not exactly sure but it is not very much. It also depends on how strong the wave is.


Can an electric current generate an electromagnetic wave?

Not a constant electric current but a changing one will generate electromagnetic waves.First: If you have a lone electron, and it is accelerated in any way, it will send off an electromagnetic wave. This is because a changing electric field generates a magnetic field.It is also true that changing magnetic field will generate an electric field. This is the reason that if you have an electric current, which is generating a magnetic field, and you change the current you generate an electromagnetic wave. To generate a continuous sinusoidal electromagnetic wave you continuously change the current sinusoidally.

What are the advantages of a searaser?

searasers are a simple way of producing electricity it isn't using coal,oil or gas (fossil fuels) to produce energy it is simply using wave power the searasers use wave power to pump sea water uphill to a reservoir where the is realeased downhill which turns turbines which generate electricity.

What effect does generating more hydroelectricity have on the use of wind turbines and wave power?

If more hydroelectricity is generated as an energy source, wind turbines and wave power will be used less. If these sources are used less, this could cause job loses and other detrimental effects.

Can you name all the non renewable things and renewable things?

Non-renewable: Oil, Nuclear power, Coal and Natural gas. Renewable: Geothermal power, Hydroelectric power, Solar power, Biomass fuel, Wind turbines, Bio fuel and Wave turbines.


Does tidal mills make as much energy as tidal waves?

It's difficult to say. A tidal wave, or a tsunami, has an amazing amount of power, but it is all over in a hour or two. Tidal mills can capture the tidal water twice a day and use it to generate clean electricity. This will continue for ever (or until the turbines need to be replaced).


What are natural resources are used for?

Natural Resources are used to make everything on the planet. The ocean is a natural resource, and it can be used to generate wave power.


How much energy could wave power generate?

There is enough energy in ocean waves to power everything in the world. However the technology is still experimental and expensive. Solar and wind power is going to be cheaper and more sustainable.


Why you are generating power from thunder in large scale?

You don't generate power from thunder. Thunder is the sound wave produced by the lightning bolt.


Where is wave energy collected?

turbines at the bottom of the sea


What can you use instead of fuel?

You can use eco friendly things. If you mean for generating power, you can use: Wind turbines solar panels hydro electric wave power Tidal power you can also use Nuclear power!
