The ocean has currents and tides that circulate round the world. This vast amount water with high potential movement produces immense amounts of energy. Tidal is a form of hydropower that converts the energy of tides into electricity or other useful forms of power. Tidal energy is produced using tidal energy generators. Some of the oldest ocean energy technologies make use of tidal power.

All coastal areas experience two high and two low tides. These tidal differences can be harnessed into electricity, but the difference between high and low tides must be at least five meters or more. Large underwater turbines are placed in regions with high tidal movements, and are designed to capture the kinetic motion of the ebbing and surging of ocean tides in order to produce electricity.

Wind is a renewable resource because it is limitless. Wind power is the fastest growing electricity generation technology. It is a result of the sun heating the earth unevenly; some patches become warmer than others. The seasonal changes in temperature constantly generate wind, thus producing a fuel source that will never exhaust. As long as the sun shines, the wind will blow and people will harness it to power their lives.

How it works:

The Sun heats our earth unevenly causing some patches to become warmer than others.

Ocean waves are caused by the wind blowing across the sea. There is tremendous amount of energy stored in the ocean waves. Waves are a powerful source of energy.

The total power of waves breaking around the coastlines all over the world is estimated at 2-3 million megawatts. One way to harness wave energy is to focus the waves into a narrow channel which increases their power, size and impact. The waves can then be directed into a catch basin or may be used directly to spin turbines. There are a few small wave energy plants, but no big commercial ones. The best potential can be harnessed on small, on-shore sites for immediate future. These produce enough energy to power local communities.

Benefits Your Health and Preserves Planet Earth

The definition of "green living" is something more than choosing paper instead of plastic grocery bags, recycling beer cans and newspapers, driving a fuel efficient car, eating organically grown food.

These activities certainly contribute to keeping our planet Earth and our personal health in good shape... But understanding "green living" and what exactly does it have to do with improving personal health and energy brings us to a broad definition of green living: Green Living is any action or activity that results in a positive impact, to any degree, on the environment so that the planet can continue to support the generations to come.
