When we think about renewable energy sources, the usual suspects are typically solar and wind. But what about the ocean? Since ocean waves are constantly in motion, and motion means energy, could there be a way for us to harvest this energy and limit our dependence on fossil fuels? Jonathan explores some emerging technologies that are already showing promise!

What other ways do you think we’ll use the ocean’s power and depth to create renewable energy in the future? We want to hear your most creative ideas in the comments below!
