Yes, hydro come from the Greek word for water, and wave power is classed as hydro power. Other kinds of hydro power are produced from the movement of water through dams, tides and rivers.

What does wave energy power?

Wave power produces renewable energy, that is, electricity. This is the same electricity that we use every day, so wave power can power our heaters, coolers, electric cars, trains and planes and everything that runs on electricity.

Are there simulators for hydro power?

There are models that are made to test different situations. Dams, wave motion and tidal motion are all forms of hydro electricity.

Were can you find renewable fuel?

Sunlight is renewable. With solar panels you can use it to produce electricity.Wind power is similar.Water power (hydro-electric dams, tidal power, wave power) is similar.Boiling water from under the ground is renewable, too.

Solar energy, Wind energy through wind turbines, Wave power and hydro-electrical power.

Can waves given off by electric power lines be seen?

There is only one type of wave that humans can see. Visible light. If the wave given off by the electric power line is visible light, then yes. If it is any other type of wave than it is not possible to see.

Does solar power do any damage to the environment?

No, solar power has no harmful polluting emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) or other gases, so it has no effect on global warming or the environment. This is the same for all forms of renewable energy (solar, wind, hydro, tidal and wave, geothermal among others).

Why isn't hydro power the best renewable energy source?

Hydro electric power generally is generally thought of as the power of water falling through a distance (like the generators at Niagara Falls). This also a demonstration of the problem with the process, it requires water at high places that can be fed down to generators at low places. this makes it unavailable for flat or arid countries. Hydro power can also include wave or tidal power systems. Large bodies of water are required excluding land locked or arid countries. The third case is turbines in rivers with the attendant concern that not all locations have such resources. Many small hydro installations of these types can be developed for small user communities, but the ability to replace large thermal power stations is limited.
