Wave power generation cum shore protection project envisages tapping the energy of ocean waves and wind for the generation of electricity and integrating it with the national power grid. A number of impellors are arranged parallel to the shore for a span of 500 m at a distance of about 100 m from the seashore. Impellers are designed to tap the trienergies of ocean waves.

Using a material known as "piezoelectric plastic", a US company is trying to convert the kinetic energy of waves into electricity. Piezoelectric plastic generates an electric charge when
