Power from the ocean: from waves to electricity
Did you know that ocean waves have enough energy to supply almost 10% of the electricity need in the whole world?
Also, did you know that it has a very limited environmental impact? It is true, and there is a lot of research being done in wave energy, to make it happen!
Before presenting each slide, I will ask the students what do they know, or think they know, about the topic I am going to present next, to get them thinking and then compare what they thought with what I present.
I will display videos of laboratory experiments of wave energy converters.
The lecture will be in english.
