The energy captured is then used for all different kinds of useful work, including electricity generation, water desalination, and pumping of water. Wave energy is also a type of renewable energy and is the largest estimated global resource form of ocean energy.

The first patent in wave energy happened in Paris in 1799. Monsieur Girard and his son proposed using direct mechanical action to drive heavy machinery, including mills, saws, and pumps. 1 After the first patent, thousands more followed. There were 340 from 1855 to 1973 in the UK alone. Another early application was in 1910. Bochaux Praceique developed a device to light and power his house.
