Marine energy is the energy carried by ocean waves. The movement of the water creates a large amount of kinetic energy. This energy can be harnessed to produce electricity.

The ocean energy industry has a number of technologies and concepts. The diversity in the industry is having an unintended impact on the development of the supply chain which could play a significant role in the development of the ocean energy sector and also help in reduction of costs and the commercialization of various concepts.


Marine energy in the US is a relatively nascent industry and lags behind that of the United Kingdom. However, recent developments have boosted the growth of this market, with California and Oregon leading the marine energy industry in the US. It is expected that in the next five years, the US marine energy industry will witness significant investment as well as growth.


Ocean Power Technologies, Marine Current Turbines, Oceana Energy, etc., are some of the most powerful players in the industry.

Aruvian Research analyzes the Marine Energy industry in the US in its research reports Analyzing Marine Energy in the US. The report begins with a brief profile of the global energy industry and the global renewable energy industry. We look at the oil market, the natural gas market and the future perspective of the global energy industry.
