ABSTRACT | This talk is an introduction to wave and tidal renewable energy. It covers the science of waves and tides, gives an estimate of the potential size of the resource and discusses the type of technology needed to turn this natural movement of water into useful energy. Wales is used as a case study and several of the companies that are present in Wales are described. Overall, this should provide a broad understanding of the technology that has been developed to make use of this opportunity.
