Energy from the oceans can be obtained in the form of tidal energy, wave energy and ocean thermal energy. But these energy sources suffer from the following limitations:

  • There are very few locations where dams to utilise tidal energy can be built.
  • Cost of installation of power houses is extremely high and the efficiency of plants is comparatively small.
  • Power plants built in oceans or at sea-shores will need high continuous maintenance as chances of corrosion are extremely high.
