Green energy from the bottom of the sea
First we got wind turbines to generate energy and now it seems scientists have found a way to tap the energy force of waves….
The device, pictured above, involves two air chambers: as a wave passes over the top of the first chamber, the pressure inside increases, forcing air through a passageway to the second chamber. Inside the passageway is a turbine, so the passing air is actually what generates the electricity. As the wave continues on, it raises the pressure inside the second chamber, pushing the air back through the turbine — importantly, it is a bidirectional turbine — and back into the first chamber. Another wave, another cycle. Repeat.
Find out here how powerful this device can be.
