The renewable energy sources (wind, solar energy, hydroelectric energy, the oceans, geothermal energy, biomass and biofuels) offer alternative to fossil fuels which contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The European Commission proposed, in 2020, a lens that 20% of the energy consumption of the EU to originate from renewable sources of energy (Directiva 2009/28/CE).

The power of sea waves could constitute a major source of renewable energy. The energy of the surf is operated when the electricity producers are placed on the surface of the oceans or seas.

The energy provided is most often used in the Desalter installations. The theoretical potential global is 8x105 TWh/year, which is 100 times the amount of energy that could be produced annually by conventional hidroenergeticefacilities.
