Triton is a ‘mechanical jellyfish’ that could allow us to harvest tons of energy from the ocean
As move away from harmful fossil fuels we are seeing an absolute boom in clean tech developing, with the latest being able to harvest energy from wave movement.
The science behind it is quite simple. “As waves interact with the device, there is an alternating magnetic polarity created in the metal that is used to generate electricity,” asserts Meagan Parrish from ChemInfo.
Whilst it is still in test trials if it proves successful it could power up to 1/3 of the energy needs of the US.
