Unlike solar or wind energy, ocean delivers waves energy 24/7. Waves get their energy from the wind. Wind comes from solar energy. Waves gather, store, and transmit this energy thousands of miles with little loss.

The map shows annual average wave power in kilowatts per metre of crest width for various sites around the world.
