Ocean energy generates energy when seawater pushes air through a turbine, and the rotating turbines convert the motion into electricity. A 100 megawatt wave farm could power more than 18,000 homes. The equipment could also be used to power desalination plants, offshore fish farms, or even underwater data centers (servers generate a lot of heat, so putting them in the ocean is one way to keep them cool. costs). Waves are also a more stable and predictable source of energy than wind or solar power, which requires batteries or some other form of storage for times when the sun or wind is not available.
