Nowadays, Renewable Energy (RE) has a significant role in providing a safe, reliable
and cheap alternative for all of our energy needs. This role will keep growing as a
result of increasing global energy demands, climate change warning and depletion of
the fossil fuel resources due to the vast usage of the sources to get energy call
electrical energy. Unfortunately, which is mostly the concentration of carbon dioxide
(C02) is increasing constantly and also the effect of global warming is becoming ever
more evident. Hence, the global implementation of Renewable Energy (RE)
technology can contribute significantly to this problem. This project entitled
Harnessing Marine Energy for Generating Electricity will discuss about a design
suitable for energy extraction/conversion by utilizing both wave and tides energy.
The prototype was developed as an example of wave energy generator by using a
direct drive concept in a number of specific ways. The energy converter is the main
part of this prototype that will be thoroughly described in the chapters to come. The
basic principle used is linear motion that can directly produce electricity. The
outcomes of the project prove that the concept of linear motion applied in energy
conversion can produce certain amount of electrical energy.
